ABSTRACT

Plastic waste are the most dangerous material produced that can be harmful to humans and animals as well. Apart from this, it also affects the environment in number of ways. To reduce these adverse effects of plastic, this research deals with the preparation of concrete mixture from the PET plastic and cups along with the cement. This will help to reduce the plastic wastage present on the earth and also help to prepare strong concrete mixtures. In this research, the concrete mixture is prepared with cement, aggregates, water and some ratio of PET plastic. The plastic bottles and cups has been shredded by a plastic shredder to get the plastic coarse aggregate type of material. The ratios considered are 0.0%, 0.5%, 1.0%, 1.5%, and 2.0% of the actual cement amount. The cubes are prepared of mixtures for compressive strength test and beams are casted for preforming the flexural test. The tests of these results are presented in this thesis in an effective way so that it can be helpful in making other further decision or conclusion. Overall, the results indicate that the compression strength and flexural strength values decreased as the amount of PET plastic is increased in the concrete mixtures. There can be only some amount of PET plastic in concrete mixtures but it can’t use high ratio of plastic in the mixtures.
