Development of Recycled Polypropylene Plastic Fibres to Reinforce Concrete

This book outlines a methodology for producing macro recycled polypropylene (PP) fibres with optimal mechanical properties and illustrates the reinforcing effects of recycled PP fibres in concrete. It describes the great potential of using these fibres in concrete applications such as footpaths and precast elements. Further, it sheds new light on the environmental impacts of using recycled PP fibres, which are evaluated by means of cradle to gate life cycle assessment based on the Australian context. The use of recycled PP fibre not only helps reduce consumption of virgin materials like steel or plastic but also provides an attractive avenue for recycling plastic waste. The book will appeal to engineers, governments, and solid waste planners, and offers a valuable reference for the plastic waste recycling and plastic fibre reinforced concrete industries. Dr. Shi Yin obtained his PhD degree in 2016 at James Cook University in Australia. From 2012 to 2015, while completing his PhD project, he was also employed by Fibercon Australia as their Chief Technology Officer and Development Engineer, and further published 7 S.C.I. journal articles during this time. His PhD project was 'Development of recycled polypropylene plastic fibres to reinforce concrete' which, in 2015, was award the 'James Cook University Prize for Innovation in Higher Degree Research'. In addition to this, Dr. Shi Yin led his research team to be awarded winner of the 2015 'Australia Innovation Challenge (Manufacturing, Construction and Infrastructure)'. Presently, Dr. Shi Yin is Managing Director in Ningbo Shike Advanced Material Technology Co., Ltd in China. His PhD project was 'Development of recycled polypropylene plastic fibres to reinforce concrete', which was award the 'James Cook University Prize for Innovation in Higher Degree Research' in 2015 and 'Dean's Award for Research Higher Degree Excellence' in 2016. In addition to this, Dr. Shi Yin led his research team to be awarded winner of the 2015 'The Australia Innovation Challenge (Manufacturing, Construction and Infrastructure)'.
