Title: Sudan Engineering Society JOURNAL , September 2006, Volume 52 No.47 9 Use PET Bottles Waste to Partially Substitute Sand in some Cement-based Mortar Applications
Author: Ibrahim Ahmed, Ahmed; Awadelkarim Mohammed, Abdelshakour
Abstract: The amounts of PET bottles waste are steadily increasing globally. In the Sudan the PET bottles wastes average per y ear for the years 2003 -2015 amounts to 38336 ton. This work aimed to reuse the PET bottles wa ste as a partial substitute to sand in mortar compositions in form of blocks, bricks, plaster, binding bricks mortar so as to reduce the amount of waste and sa ve the environment from its hazards. Best conditions for the tested variables with 20% PET amount are: 8% water amount, 1% gum amount and 4,76mm size of the PET material. The resulting products from the PET mortar compos itions give comparable performance against both compressive and splitting strengt
