STUDY OF MODIFIED BUILDING MATERIALS FROM RECYCLED SOLID WASTES
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, Aryabhatta College of Engineering and Research Center
There are sufficient environmental advocacies that were attributed to correct waste segregation and solid waste management however solely few were deemed to achieve success due to the un-sustainability of the projects that were implemented. Thus, a research and environmentally adjusted company ventured on a social enterprise that might utilize recovered wastes as part of its raw materials in the development of materials that square measure deemed to be marketable and profitable. The products that were developed were as follows: concrete formed with plastic strips, concrete hollow blocks with ground plastic/coco coir, geo-polymer adhesives, fiber board, wood plastic composite, activated carbon, adhesives, paper and organic fertilizer. The modified hollow blocks, modified formed and geo-polymer adhesives were found to be very marketable because the demand for building construction materials are increasing due to the boom in the industry. The another products that were indicated square measure still being researched and developed due to the constraints of the testing machines that may test its specific qualities.
Keywords: Solid waste management modified concrete products, concrete hollow blocks, concrete precast.
