|Recycled Plastic Aggregate|
|Currently, India generates about 26000 tonnes of plastic a day, according to the statistics given by Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi. The non biodegradable properties of plastic have made severe impact on the soil and water quality. Land filling of plastic waste leaches potentially toxic substances into the soil and water. Micro plastics have also been found in the air, food and the water that people consume. These plastics are known for their hormonal effects and can disrupt the hormone system of vertebrates and invertebrates alike. To overcome these problems proper utilisation of plastic wastes is very important. Several studies are being carried out to utilize the plastic wastes in various forms in cement concrete as it is one of the most consumed materials in the construction works, the world over. However, due to the depletion of natural sources, construction industries are facing shortfall of river sand. Hence, use of plastic wastes in concrete production can be considered as an alternative way to tackle both the problems. The objective of this review is to check the feasibility of using plastic waste in the granular form as a replacement for fine aggregate in the concrete. Along with this, the paper will be focusing on future scope for studies using plastic wastes in concretes.|
