Use of Plastic Waste in Civil Construction
Keywords:compressive strength, waste plastic, LPDE(Low density poly ethylene), paver block, ecological
The usage of waste plastic in concrete paver block is partial solution to the environmental and ecological problems associated with it. The aim of this research is to study the uses of plastic waste as a binding material in pave block casting. In this project, the difference mix proportion of milk packet waste were used to replace cement in paver block to obtain desired result. In 21th century over 300 million tons of plastic produced worldwide each year. Hence this type of study is required to reduce the plastic waste in useful way. Another aim is achieved by this research to reduce the cost of paver block when compare that of concrete paver block. For the test, paver block are prepared and their compressive strength is tested.
