Add your own review!

Overview

This book focuses on the utilization of wastes produced from plastic usage by industry and consumers, along with the partial to full replacement of conventional cement as a primary binder material in concrete. This book demonstrates how to use post-consumer waste plastics and industry wastes from thermal power stations, agro-industries, and metal industries with a scientific approach to conventional concrete. The primary aim is to demonstrate the methods to prepare a sustainable alternative construction material of concrete using waste materials. Features: Illustrates making eco-friendly procedures of concrete construction popular by way of utilization of plastics and industrial wastes Covers all major aspects of plastic waste-based concrete from conception to execution Promotes alternative materials for sustainable construction Describes economic aspects of using eco-efficient concrete on a mass scale Includes experimental results with graphs This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in civil engineering, construction materials, and concrete.
