A scientific book on eco-efficient mortars co-authored by LNEC’s researcher Maria do Rosário Veiga was published in May 2021.

The book, intitled "Eco-efficient Rendering Mortars. Use of Recycled Materials”, ISBN: 978-0-12-818494-3, by the publisher Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering, is authored by: Catarina Brazão Farinha, Researcher from CERIS, Civil Engineering Research and Innovation for Sustainability, Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal; Jorge de Brito, Professor of Civil Engineering, from Department of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Georesources, Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal and Rosário Veiga, Researcher from National Laboratory for Civil Engineering, Buildings Department, Buildings Coating Finishes and Thermal Insulation Unit, Portugal.

This book, with about 250 pages and a list of about 250 scientific references, contains an up-to-date state of the art of low-energy rendering mortars, namely using industrial waste, and includes a significant amount of research by the group to which the authors belong. 

Issues such as the influence of the various types of aggregates on several aspects of the behaviour of mortars and the analysis of functionality are addressed, as well as the life cycle assessment (LCA) of these materials.
