Use of plastic waste in cement-bound layers

Bartłomiej Krawczyk , Piotr Mackiewicz , Dariusz Dobrucki


The article presents research on the possible use of material obtained during recycling of plastic waste. The materials were used in production of cement-bound mixtures for road pavement layers or improved subgrade. The analyses were based on laboratory tests of plastic waste, aggregate and cement-bound mixtures. The tests encompassed particle size distribution, compaction, compressive strength (early – after 7 days; final – after 28 days), frost resistance and California Bearing Ratio (CBR). The obtained results were evaluated in the light of the current national technical requirements. It was shown that plastic waste may be used as an alternative to classic materials.
