Use of Recycled Plastics in Eco-efficient Concrete looks at the processing of plastic waste, including techniques for separation, the production of plastic aggregates, the production of concrete with recycled plastic as an aggregate or binder, the fresh properties of concrete with plastic aggregates, the shrinkage of concrete with plastic aggregates, the mechanical properties of concrete with plastic aggregates, toughness of concrete with plastic aggregates, modulus of elasticity of concrete with plastic aggregates, durability of concrete with plastic aggregates, concrete plastic waste powder with enhanced neutron radiation shielding, and more, thus making it a valuable reference for academics and industrial researchers.

  • Describes the main types of recycled plastics that can be applied in concrete manufacturing
  • Presents, for the first time, state-of-the art knowledge on the properties of conventional concrete with recycled plastics
  • Discusses the technological challenges for concrete manufactures for mass production of recycled concrete from plastic waste
