Performance Evaluation of Plastic Concrete Modified with E-Waste Plastic as a Partial Replacement of Coarse Aggregate
A significant decrement in the sorptivity coefficient, abrasion loss, and UPV value was observed with an increasing amount of manufactured PCA, and RPAC containing different percentages of PCA revealed better results against alternate W–D cycles with respect to ordinary concrete.
Effects of Polyethylene Ground Plastic Waste Aggregate for Concrete Mixing Proportion
In recent times, the production of polyethylene ground plastics has increased markedly in the Philippines. However, current levels of their usage and disposal generate several environmental problems.
A review on plastic waste as sustainable resource in civil engineering applications
Plastic wastes are non-biodegradable and can stay in the ecosystem for many decades. It can go through aging processes resulting from physical, chemical, and biological actions with the potential to
Impact strength and behavior of concrete containing different plastic wastes
The growth of post consumed plastic wastes requires recycling to save the environment against pollution. One solution is the reuse of the waste as a substantially material for concrete production.
Use of Non-Woven Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Tissue to improve Certain Properties of Concrete
Nowadays plastic is closely linked to the way of our life. The annual consumption of plastics has been increasing gradually. The inadequate disposal of plastic has been resulted in major
An Investigation of Mechanical Properties of Concrete by Applying Sand Coating on Recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Electronic-Wastes (E-Wastes) Used as a Partial Replacement of Natural Coarse Aggregates
Plastic wastes are a major hazard for the environment and their use in the construction industry is increasing day by day. The major drawback of the use of plastic in concrete is an exceptional


Use of recycled plastic in concrete: a review.
Recycling of E-plastic waste as a construction material in developing countries
This paper presents an experimental investigation on structural concrete with partial replacement of coarse aggregate using electronic plastic waste (E-plastic). In view of utilizing the
Potential Use of Plastic Wastes for Low Thermal Conductivity Concrete
Porosity was found to increase with higher volume fraction of plastic fibers, whereas decreases in workability, bulk density, thermal conductivity, splitting tensile strength, and compressive strength were encountered.
The aim of this study is to explore the possibility of re-cycling a plastic bag waste material (BBW) that is now produced in large quantities in the formulation of concrete as fine aggregate by
Plastics recycling: challenges and opportunities
Advances in technologies and systems for the collection, sorting and reprocessing of recyclable plastics are creating new opportunities for recycling, and with the combined actions of the public, industry and governments it may be possible to divert the majority of plastic waste from landfills to recycling over the next decades.
