Abstract
Over a past few decades, there are wide ranges of alternatives available in the field of construction with the changing in the raw material for the particulars. As concern with the brick there are some invention like fly ash brick, concrete blocks and brick. Here we are using black cotton soil as a raw material for the bricks and also using some admixture to alter the properties of the black cotton soil and plastic waste. Plastic is a non-bio-degradable substance which takes thousands of years to decompose that creates land as well as water pollution to the environment. The quantity of plastic waste in Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is expanding rapidly. It is estimated that the rate of usage is double for every 10 years. The Plastic usage is large in consumption and one of the largest plastic wastes is polyethylene (PE). The utilization of earth-based clay material resulted in resource depletion and environmental degradation. As amount of clay required for brick is huge, in this project these waste plastics are effectively utilized in order to reduce the land space required to dump these wastes. This creates the prevention from various harmful diseases. Polyethylene (PE) bags are cleaned and added with fine aggregate at various ratios to obtain high strength bricks that possess thermal and sound insulation properties. This is one of the best ways to avoid the accumulation of plastic waste. It also helps to conserve energy, reduce the overall cost of construction and hence inthis project, an attempt made to manufacture the plastic soil bricks by utilizing the waste plastics. This research study describes the feasibility of using black cotton soil as a raw material with some additional stabilizer and waste plastic in the brick production.
