    Abstract

    An experimental program was carried out to study the transport properties of concrete made with E-waste plastic (high impact polystyrene (HIPS)). The concrete was prepared with different percentages (0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) of HIPS as partial replacement of natural coarse aggregate by volume. The transport properties of concrete, such as water absorption and sorptivity, were investigated and results were reported. The percentage of water absorption of concrete with HIPS shows higher value compared to the control concrete. The increase in HIPS increases the water absorption of concrete but the values were within the permissible limit. The sorptivity values were increased with increase in HIPS content; all values were higher than control concrete; however, it decreased with increase in curing age. The sorptivity results were in line with that of water absorption results. Recycling of E-waste plastic (HIPS) as an aggregate in concrete as a new construction material may be one of the feasible solution to environment pollution, natural aggregate depletion and E-waste recycling.
