Abstract:

Disposal of waste materials including waste plastic bags has become a serious problem and waste plastics are burnt for apparent disposal which cause environmental pollution. Utilization of waste plastic in bituminous mixes has proved that the properties of mix are improved and disposal problems are also solved to some extent. The cleaned Plastic waste is cut into a size such that it passes through 2.36 mm sieve using shredding machine. The aggregate mix is heated and the plastic is effectively coated over the aggregates. This plastic waste coated aggregates are mixed with hot bitumen to prepare job mix formula. The use of the innovative technology will not only strengthen the road construction but also increase the road life as well as will help to reduce the environment pollution. The present study investigates the use of waste plastic as a modifier for semi dense bituminous concrete. In this study the shredded plastic waste is mixed in hot aggregate and the plastic modified mix is prepared using 6%,8%,10%,12%, and 14%plastic by weight of bitumen .it has been found that the Marshall stability value is maximum when 12% plastic waste is added to the mix. The other Marshall parameters are also improved with the addition of plastic waste into the bituminous mix.
