Utilization of waste PET bottles as aggregate in masonry

Utilization of waste PET as aggregates in masonry mortar/ concrete would be good solution to this environmental hazard [2]. Few numbers of studies focusing on uses of PET in mortar and concrete have been reported in the literature. A brief account of the

Potential use of Plastic Waste as Construction Materials

Recycling of plastic waste as valued added product such as concrete appears as one of promising solution for alternative use of plastic waste. This paper summarized recent progress on the development of concrete mixture which incorporates plastic wastes a

Re-Use of Hospital Plastic Waste in Asphalt Mixes as

About 1.3 billion tons of waste is being generated in the world annually. This waste is a cause of various diseases. Open dumping of waste also destroys valuable agricultural land. Various researchers have beneficially used plastic waste in cement concret

Effects of waste PET bottles aggregate on the properties

The fine aggregates are clean river sands (RS) and lightweight aggregates made from waste PET bottles (WPLA). The coarse aggregate is crushed stone aggregate with a maximum size of 20 mm. Both the fine and coarse aggregates are sufficient in satisfying th
