The production of durable concrete with a high content of supplementing cementitious materials and recycled aggregate presents a step towards sustainability in the concrete industry. The paper presents the findings of the study, conducted on four series of concrete with self-compacting properties, which embodied recycled concrete aggregate, as a substitution for natural sand and gravel. Besides, this concrete possessed high content of fly ash, therefore qualifying as ecological (green) one. Particle packing method was used in the design of this concrete. Fresh properties included: density, slump flow, V-funnel, L-box and temperature, while compressive and tensile strengths were evaluated in the hardened state. Although certain difficulties in the application were recognized concerning the fast loss of workability in the fresh state, all of the tested mixtures exceeded the requirements of hardened structural concrete.
