Improvement of mechanical properties of recycled mixed plastic waste is one of the fundamental goals in any recycling process. However, polymer immiscibility makes the development of any effective reprocessing method difficult. In this work, a polymer milling process with liquid CO2 was applied to polymeric mixed waste, obtaining a powder material which was successfully utilized as a matrix for a new composite material. Developed materials have interesting mechanical properties
plastic products used for packaging are often discarded after a single use resulting in an inexhaustible supply of waste polymeric materials. The stiffness and strength of polymeric materials have been known to improve with the addition of lignocellulosic fibres available in abundance in nature. Hence, composite materials containing natural fibres and waste plastics would result in the reduction of solid wastes and the use of cheap, renewable resources. composite specimens
Secondary recycling of many waste materials has been limited by chronic technical and economic barriers. However, recent advances in the processing of mixed waste plastics has led to the development of innovative polymer matrix composites. materials research by the Robert Morgan & Company, Inc., has shown great promise for the utilization of mixed waste materials, including plastics, paper and fiberglass. This formulation and processing technology allows direct conversion of
This study had two aims: to develop prospective techniques for recycling of composite plastic wastes and to find a potential application area for secondary materials. The method of collision was selected for the treatment of composite plastic wastes and a disintegrator mill was used. In our experiments, the particle size of acrylic plastic was reduced and glass fibers intact were separated. The paper describes the results of materials separation, granularity of the milled material and
Glass fibre and recycled mixed plastic composites. APPLICATIONS OF RECYCLED plastic composite materialS. New materials and combinations of recycled materials are constantly being proposed and used in construction industry. Conversion into plastic lumber is considered as a possible processing alternative to landfilling for mixed plastics waste. Some of the first uses for plastic lumber were items like fencing and park benches as shown in Figure 2, which are subject to
Procedure into pilot scale production of composite floor tiles. The steps involved in the production of the floor tiles are detailed below: Collection of materials: The plastic materials were collected from trenches, drainages, streets, dump sites and from eateries around Ogbomoso metropolis. The reason for using this area as case study is due to large volume of plastics wastes generated by these selected area. To effectively collect these plastic wastes the areas where plastics wastes
AI3S"FtAm. The objective of this work is tb synthesize an envimnmentally- benign fiber composite material. "his material is made ti" waste fabrics and plastics. A polypro&ene TP' carpet-waste Mric was used as the candidate reinforcing material due to its good mechanical properties and abundant avail- ability. The matrix material was chosen to be scrap polyethylene TE? This choice was based on its market availability as a common waste (eg, bottles, shopping bags, trash bags, etc)

The rapid Urbanization and Industrialization all over the world has resulted in large deposition of plastic waste. This waste can be utilized under proper condition to reduce the Cement content in Concrete.M20 concrete is used for most of the constructional works, since it gives maximum strength. The strength of this concrete was compared with concrete obtained of shredded plastic waste varying from 2-8%. Experimental investigations comprised of testing physical requirements of

The plastic is the most used man-made material in the world through their specific characteristics such as easy manufacturing and shaping, cheaper cost and low density. It is very useful in in different areas such as medicine, architecture, construction and transport. Unfortunately after the use are thrown in nature. Their accumulation poses an environmental problem. Due to the non-biodegradable. The utilization of waste plastic in manufactory of another materiel is a partial solution
