Title

DESIGN OF PAVEMENT BLOCKS UTILIZING LOW DENSITY POLY ETHYLENE (LDPE) WASTE, AND IT’S EVALUATION

Abstract

India is suffering from huge problem of solid waste management in this age of rapid development and the major portion of this solid waste comprise of polyethylene, especially LDPE. Plastic waste has become one of the major environmental problems, so by utilizing plastic in a useful way we can reduce the burden on environment by a huge margin. In this study, an attempt has been made by replacing the cement used in the pavement blocks by low density plastic as the binding material. By using plastic as a binding material rather than cement, it can be proved beneficial to the environment in multiple ways. Hence, in this study LDPE waste is used for making pavement blocks using molten plastic (instead of cement) and sand. Different mixes of Plastic: Sand (P:S) ratio are prepared and then tested. The ratios being tested are 20:80 and 30:70 (Plastic :Sand) by weight. The results will then be compared with that of conventional pavement blocks (i.e. cement and sand blocks) on grounds of compressive strength, water absorption as well as on the basis of economy (approximate cost per pavement block).The results found are compatible and hence it can be suggested that plastic waste can be used for the making of pavement blocks.

Key Words
