Abstract: ln this presentation, the smart recycling of concrete is addressed. Smart recycling means new crushing and separating techniques to obtain flows of relatively pure aggregates and cement stone, whereby the latter is tried to separate further in reacted and unreacted cement. Treatment of the flows, such as their accelerated carbonation, are introduced. Besides the material and processing techniques, also new characterization methods are presented to assess the phase composition of generated flows.
