Abstract

Concrete is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate, which is mainly derived from natural resources. Increasing population, expanding urbanization, climbing way of life due to technological innovations has demanded a huge amount of natural resources in the construction industry, which has resulted in scarcity of resources. India is facing a serious challenge in disposing the waste in landfills throughout the country. The landfill disposal is resulting in high disposal costs and potential environmental problems. If current trend continues, waste production will grow by 5% each year, which will ultimately result in saturated capacity of landfills by 2020. This project reports on the results of an investigation of utilization of paper waste as additional material in concrete mixes to be used for housing projects, for which it must be assured that the resulting concrete has the proper mechanical strength. Concrete mixes containing various contents of the waste were prepared and basic characteristics such as compressive strength and water absorption were determined and compared with a control mix. Four concrete mixes with 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% and 40% of paper waste as an additional material to the concrete were prepared for M-25 concrete.
