Abstract:

This experimental study presents the use of plastic-waste as a substitute for coarse aggregates in concrete as an effective way to reduce the dead-load of concrete and reduce the pollution due to plastic-waste. This paper emphasizes on using the plastic-waste such as, Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE) and Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) to substitute the coarse aggregates in concrete to lower the density of concrete. In addition to plastic-waste, Aluminum powder is also used to minimize the weight of concrete and plastic itself is lighter than conventional coarse aggregates which results in lightweight concrete. The ill-effects of rock blasting and mining can be decreased which result in deterioration of mountains and danger to various animals and inhabitants in the surrounding area. Pollution due to plastic waste is increasing daily around the globe and should be controlled by recycling the waste plastic and using it as coarse aggregate in concrete. Light weight concrete will decrease the overall weight of structure and the amount of steel to be used in concrete will reduce. This will result in optimizing the overall cost of the structures which are made up of concrete. Ultimately, using waste material to replace coarse aggregates in concrete will add new dimension in concrete mix design and Reinforced concrete structures (R.C.C). If used globally, it will aid in transforming the construction industry, by reducing the cost and providing Green buildings.
