In the following, a brief survey of mineral lightweight granules manufactured on the basis of a wide variety of constituents is given. After that, research projects conducted at the Tomsk Polytechnic University (Russian Federation) and Bauhaus University Weimar (Germany) are introduced that focus on the development of lightweight aggregates from new raw materials sources. In Tomsk, zeolitic rocks were used, while the investigations in Weimar concentrated on the sand fraction of masonry rubble mixed with autoclaved aerated concrete.
