Abstract: As we all are well aware about the uses of paper in day-to-day life, papers are being used in official as well as non-official places in the form of newspapers, book papers, copy papers or other types. Mostly these papers are burned which results in environment pollution. This research deals with the usage of waste papers in concrete to check the properties of concrete by varying the percentage of papers. The papers used in this research are A4 size white papers which were thrown away in the college, the papers are of 85 gsm thickness. From the study it was found that by adding papers into the concrete the weight of the concrete decreases by certain amount while as on the other hand due to increase in the percentage of papers the strength of the concrete goes on decreasing.
Keyword: Papercrete, 85gsm, Light weight, A4 size white paper.
Scope of the Article: Concrete Engineering.
