Abstract

The Infrastructure Construction Materials provide a significant market potential for recycling plastic resins. Today, there are several examples of construction materials and products containing recycled plastic resins. This article describes the research to practice cases known today in the infrastructure construction materials. Recycled plastic resins are routinely used for producing polymer modified highway and building materials and traffic control devices. At present, significant research and effort is being made for identifying new uses and applications with these resins. Several of these developments and uses are presented along with the identification of application requirements and needs.
