TL;DR: The effect of recycled and waste plastic on bulk density, air content, workability, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, impact resistance, permeability, and abrasion resistance is discussed in this paper.
Abstract: Numerous waste materials are generated from manufacturing processes, service industries and municipal solid wastes The increasing awareness about the environment has tremendously contributed to the concerns related with disposal of the generated wastes Solid waste management is one of the major environmental concerns in the world With the scarcity of space for landfilling and due to its ever increasing cost, waste utilization has become an attractive alternative to disposal Research is being carried out on the utilization of waste products in concrete Such waste products include discarded tires, plastic, glass, steel, burnt foundry sand, and coal combustion by-products (CCBs) Each of these waste products has provided a specific effect on the properties of fresh and hardened concrete The use of waste products in concrete not only makes it economical, but also helps in reducing disposal problems Reuse of bulky wastes is considered the best environmental alternative for solving the problem of disposal One such waste is plastic, which could be used in various applications However, efforts have also been made to explore its use in concrete/asphalt concrete The development of new construction materials using recycled plastics is important to both the construction and the plastic recycling industries This paper presents a detailed review about waste and recycled plastics, waste management options, and research published on the effect of recycled plastic on the fresh and hardened properties of concrete The effect of recycled and waste plastic on bulk density, air content, workability, compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, impact resistance, permeability, and abrasion resistance is discussed in this paper

TL;DR: Due to the large volumes of waste generated, the high moisture content of the waste and the changing waste composition as a result of process conditions, recovery methods are usually expensive and their environmental impact is still uncertain.
Abstract: Eleven million tonnes of waste are produced yearly by the European pulp and paper industry, of which 70% originates from the production of deinked recycled paper. Wastes are very diverse in composition and consist of rejects, different types of sludges and ashes in mills having on-site incineration treatment. The production of pulp and paper from virgin pulp generates less waste but the waste has similar properties to waste from the production of deinked pulp, although with less inorganics. Due to legislation and increased taxes, landfills are quickly being eliminated as a final destination for wastes in Europe, and incineration with energy recovery is becoming the main waste recovery method. Other options such as pyrolysis, gasification, land spreading, composting and reuse as building material are being applied, although research is still needed for optimization of the processes. Due to the large volumes of waste generated, the high moisture content of the waste and the changing waste composition as a result of process conditions, recovery methods are usually expensive and their environmental impact is still uncertain. For this reason, it is necessary to continue research on different applications of wastes, while taking into account the environmental and economic factors of these waste treatments.
