Waste plastic could replace sand used in concrete


Still no mention of the life cycle of this product like the recycled plastic asphalt a few weeks back. Isn’t the problem we are all reading about daily being ground up microplastics ending up in the sea and watercourses, which in turn are being ingested by filter feeders and risking the whole food chain? So what happens to this plastic ‘sand’ in the concrete when demolished? Do we end up with unrecyclable concrete? Are we just creating another problem down the line?
