Concrete is a heterogeneous mix of cement, water and aggregates. It is widely identify that proportioning and mixing of the constituents such as cement, sand, water coarse aggregates and is important steps in concrete making process. Quality control measures are supposed to keep a check the quality of concrete being manufactured. These include tests on wet and hardened concrete. But due to large use of it availability of raw material is being questioned. Therefore other complementing materials are needed to be workout. E-waste like Printed Circuit Board is also generating in very large quantity. So it is essential to discard. The e-waste like PCBs can be recovered and can be used as a ingredient in concrete after processing. So this research focused on partial replacement the material like fine aggregate with PCBs to achieve desire concrete in terms of their properties. In this project is made on the use of E-waste particles as fine aggregates in concrete with a percentage substitute ranging from 0 % to 20% i.e. (5%, 10%, 15% and 20%). Compressive strength Concrete with and without E- waste material as a fine aggregate was observed. The feasibility of utilizing E-waste particles as a substitute of fine aggregate has been presented.This paper shows strongly possibility of E-waste being used as substitute of fine aggregate. Large use of this tends to decreases the use natural sand in concrete and it is of prime importance that replacement of natural sand can be explored.
