Abstract: The GEAR Project aims the normalization of CDW recycled products and its uses in civil construction across the elaboration of the "Spanish Guide on Recycled Aggregates".

The first stage of the project consists of the accomplishment of a technical and statistical field study to characterize the situation of the Spanish Recycling Plants. This diagnosis study consists on the analysis of data from 65 Spanish recycling plants, chosen by their importance and location, products, production and uses. Our aim is that the final document proposed in this project reflects the reality of the Spanish recycling market, considering all its technical, scientific and environmental aspects.

The study, coordinated by the GERD (Spanish Association of the Recycling Industry), is under the responsibility of three Technological Centers (AIDICO, AITEMIN, INTROMAC) and four Universities (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Universidad de La Coruña y Universidad de Oviedo).

This document presents the results obtained in this stage of the GEAR Project, whose analyses refer both to the recycled aggregates production, marketing and control, and to the Spanish and European regulations and technical particular prescriptions currently in use.
