Abstract: Protection of environment in Poland has become a very important issue, especially during
last years after joining European Union on May 1 st , 2004. Strategic motorway construction
programme and road network rehabilitation create a field of opportunities for use of waste
materials in a large-scale. Although these materials widen range of available road materials,
the advantages of their application are not frequently understand. Main problem is that
majority of waste materials are not standardized. They may be applied according to technical
approvals or individual solutions.
In order to increase use of waste materials in Poland, the Road and Bridge Research
Institute undertook to development of the catalog of waste materials for road applications.
One of the tasks will be the recognition and recommendation for placing material in road
construction. Moreover, both technical and environmental specifications for each product will
be given. This study includes industrial waste materials, which are available and practically
applied in Poland. These materials are divided into 5 groups: slags, power plant wastes (ash
and slag), building construction demolition (crushed concrete), mining waste (clump) and
chemical waste materials (refinery deposit and crumb rubber-tires).
This study collects Polish experience in the field of practical use of waste materials in road
