Due to the increase in urbanization need for construction plays an important role in the day to day activities. This results in the need for the material of which coarse aggregate is one of the main construction material. Infrastructure development results in the exhaust of coarse aggregate. Electronic waste (E-waste) is found to be a better alternative material for replacing coarse aggregate. Using E-waste in Concrete, compressive strength can be increased up to a certain percentage of addition and also helps us for disposing of E-waste safely.


Electronic waste, compressive strength, safe environmental disposal etc.,
