Abstract:

Non-bio-degradable waste plastic is a staunch global problem. Plastic wastes have harmful effects on the all the biological creatures in the ecosystem. The aim of this study is to solve the problems related to the degradation of waste plastic without harming the environment through ‘Economical Concrete and Plastic’ (Econplast) technology. It includes bonding of all categories of waste plastic and concrete mixed with specialized ‘Economically Concrete Optimizer’ (ECO) solution in absence of heat and heating treatment. The experimental setup is divided into four units, plastic waste is converted into granules in the shredding unit, which is then mixed and processed with crush sand, cement and ECO along with water in mixing unit, resulting into plastic mixed concrete, this plastic mixed concrete further molded or compress by vibrating unit and manual brick press unit to obtain different product for infrastructural development. Test samples are prepared with different percentage of plastic, concrete and ECO. Two types of tests have been carried out, i.e. wet test (fluidity and bulk density), mechanical test (compression). Results indicate that there is an improvement in the physical property of concrete with an increase in the percentage of plastic. Furthermore, there is also an acceptable decrement in the mechanical property of concrete. ECO plays an important role in bonding and settling of concrete and waste plastic. In this technology, due to the absence of the heating effect, there is a reduced carbon emission, therefore, reducing the carbon footprints.
