This document reports on a study to research and develop building materials containing organic and inorganic wastes and waste-derived products. A comprehensive literature search was conducted to review and evaluate wastes with potential as matrices, reinforcements, or fillers in building composites. The most promising candidates were evaluated with limited laboratory studies. From these studies, two types of matrices, furfural-phenolic and inorganic, were selected for further study. Seven reinforcement candidates and five filler candidates were selected for evaluation with the two matrices.
