Plastic Waste; Plastic Paver Blocks (PPB); Plastic Waste; Low Density Poly- Ethylene (LDPE)
Disposal of plastic waste accumulated in the 21st century is a major challenge worldwide. In India, about 3.5 million tons of plastic waste is produced annually causing enormous environmental hazards. The decomposition rate of plastic waste is very slow, thus it is not biodegradable and poses a major problem in waste management and waste disposal. Cement as a binding material in the construction Industry is quite popular. The cement consumption per capita in India is also rampant and cement manufacturing industry also has adverse environmental Impact. If the plastic waste is used to replace the cement as a building material or binder then there is a double possibility of mitigating the environmental hazard and help in economy. The purpose of this work is to review the scientific literature related to replacement of cement in the construction Industry in general and manufacturing of the paver blocks in particular.
