Manufacturing of Pavement Block by Using Plastic and Sand

EasyChair Preprint no. 7798

7 pagesDate: April 18, 2022


The use of plastic waste as additive in the production of the pavement blocks has both engineering and environmental implications. The use of paver blocks produced from plastic wastes becoming more popular, finding application in parking areas, compounds, open spaces, streets and in minor and major roads. The need for the construction sector to be sustained by innovative technology targeted at conserving natural resources and protecting the environment cannot be overemphasized. This research is aimed using plastic waste as binding groundmass in place of cement in the production of pavement blocks. This will go a long way to solve our environmental and ecological resulting from indiscriminate dumping of plastic waste. These blocks were subjected to flexural, compressive strength, water absorption, oven and acid test.

Keyphrases: Mould size, Plastic waste, River sand
