Abstract:
In the European Union, the concept of sustainable development covers all the environmental fields, from development politics to the appropriate management of waste, in respect to the future generations. Therefore, the aim of this study is to prove that electronic waste scraps can be used to manufacture a new modern and ecological composite material, which can be used in construction field. The Electric and Electronic Equipment (EEE) amounts, on the market, are increasing from one year to another. At the end of life, only half of the generated waste, named e-waste or Waste of Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), is collected. Knowing that the e-waste is framed as hazardous waste, because of its hazardous substances content, the challenge of our society is safe recycling, to confer security to human health and environment. The obtained composite is a new material which contains cathode ray tubes (CRT) glass waste and plastic scraps from WEEE. The composite experimental strength results (39.24 N/mm2), entitled its classification into the mortars category. The WEEE recycling method used to obtain this type of composite is an environmentally friendly one. Keywords: cathode ray tubes (CRT), composite, plastic, waste recovery
