Utilization of E-Waste in Concrete without Affecting Strength
Environmental problems occur when the rate of extraction of aggregates exceeds the rate of generation of resources. Improper disposal of E – waste can cause serious threats to human health and environment. An alternative source is essential to replace the materials used in concrete. Disposal of bulk quantity of E-waste can be achieved by using it in concrete industry. This paper attempts the possibility of using the E-waste in concrete to replace the coarse aggregates. Efforts have been made in the concrete industry to use non biodegradable components of E-waste as a partial replacements of the aggregates. Keywords – E-Waste, Mechanical Properties, Concrete, Aggregates, Compressive Strength.
