    UTILIZATION OF PLASTIC WASTE IN MANUFACTURING OF PLASTIC SAND BRICKS - A REVIEW
    Ritika Kashyap*, Dhanraj Nileshbhai Hire

    Plastic waste is a non-biodegradable waste which cannot decompose and this creates water, land pollution and air pollution. Also, while we burn the plastic waste in dumping ground, the percentage of plastic waste is increasing rapidly. It is estimated that the plastic waste will double after a decade as we use hundreds grades of plastic in our daily life. We can recycle, reuse the plastic waste. The present study makes a critical review of some of these findings and gleans some common useful trends in the properties reported in these studies. The study also presents results of experimental work on bricks made of non-recyclable waste thermoplastic granules constituting 0 to 20% by weight, 4 kg of fly ash, cement and sand making up the remainder. The bricks will then be tested to study the compressive strength, efflorescence and water absorption. In this study, recycled plastic waste has been introduced in melted form. The replacement of plastic waste material has been done by weight.
