Plastic Waste, Aggregates, Bitumen


the waste plastic and its disposal is a major threat to the environment, which results in pollution and global warming. Of this various waste materials, plastic waste and municipal solid waste are of great concern. On the other side, the road traffic is increasing. The traffic intensity is increasing. The load bearing capacities of the road are to be increased. The utilization of plastic waste in bituminous mixes enhances its properties and also its strength. In addition it will also be a solution to plastic disposal & various defects in pavement viz., pot holes, corrugation, ruts, etc. the waste plastic used are poly-ethylene, poly-styrene, poly-propylene. The waste plastic is shredded & coated over aggregate & mixed with hot bitumen and resulted mix is used for pavement construction. This will not only strengthen the pavement and also increases its durability. The titanium-di-oxide is used as a smoke absorbent material, which will absorb the smoke from the vehicles. This innovative technology will be boon for Indian hot-humid climate. It’s economical and eco-friendly. In this paper, we have discussed about the soil properties to be considered in design of pavement, pavement design, process of construction flexible and plastic-smoke absorbent pavement. The main object is to analyze & study how the waste plastic will be effectively utilized in construction of flexible pavement as a binder material for replacing the content of bitumen and in detail process & its successful application.
