Effect of Waste Glass Powder on Properties of Concrete: A Literature Review

Krati Gahoi [2] | R. Kansal


Abstract: Concrete is the mixture of various materials coarse aggregate, fine aggregate, cement & water, each of them is mixed in various proportions to achieve specific strength. Cement being the most important material plays an important role in the manufacturing of concrete. The manufacturing process of cement produces a large amount Co2 gas which is a greenhouse gas. Just like other waste products like fly ash, Silica fume etc. glass powder is also used as a partial replacement of cement. Waste glass in the form of fine aggregate or as alternative cement can be used. Researchers has investigated that glass posses a pozzolana properties due to increase in silica content, so it can be replace cement to some degree and can improve the strength and also increase the durability of concrete. According to various studies, the waste glass from door & window can be grounded fine and can be reused. The reuse of waste glass in the production of concrete can reduce the disposal problem and it can decrease the cost of concrete. This paper is a literature review, which include present & future studies on using grounded glass powder in Portland cement and in combination with other waste product.
