The research tackles the effect of the environmental factors on conventional Portland cement concrete and recycled eco-friendly concrete by performing a series of tests and experiments on both concrete types, in hope of finding the efficiency of recycled concrete in real life construction projects. By the end of the research, it has been clear that the recycled concrete had better results than the ordinary concrete mix in reference to the chloride permeability test, 1293.4 C, as compared to the regular concrete mix, 1625.5 C. Additionally, the recycled concrete showed less elongation when submerged in Na2SO4, and NaOH solutions than the regular concrete mix. Moreover, the freeze and thaw experiment yield less losses in the compressive strength of the recycled concrete mix than the regular mix. However, the only downside was present in the water absorption experiment, where the regular concrete has lower absorption than the recycled concrete mix.
