A Review on Partial Replacement of Aggregate by Recycled Plastic Waste
D.K. Chandel, Honey Gaur
Partial replacement, material, concrete.
The rapid urbanization and industrialization all over the world has resulted in large deposition of waste polymer materials. The world’s annual consumption of plastic materials has increased from around 5 million tons in the 1950s to nearly 100 million tons in 2001. Plastic waste materials consist of surplus, obsolete, broken, old plastic furniture, different household plastic materials, equipment, anti-static packaging materials and devices made of plastic. These polymer wastes are almost non-degradable in the natural environment even after a long period of exposure. Inclusion of polymer waste in concrete can be a proper utilization of this valuable property. Thus, utilization of waste polymer material in making concrete/mortar can be good solution to this environmental hazard. Very few information is available regarding recycling of polyurethane formaldehyde (PUF) -based polymer wastes and its use as construction materials. The safe use of plastic waste (plastic bags or plastic containers such as water bottle) is very important because plastics are normally stable and not biodegradable.
