Use of Recycled Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer in Mortar Report Available

The project, Aerospace Industrial Waste-Incorporated Concrete for Sustainability and Extended Durability, funded by  the Center for Environmentally Sustainable Transportation in Cold Climates, has published its final report. This study incorporates the use of recycled glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) in mortar as a volumetric replacement of sand. To understand better how GFRP would affect the properties of mortar, a feasibility study was conducted to compare different GFRP sizes and dosages. Glass fiber reinforced polymer panels were received from retired wind turbine blades and processed using a hammer mill and shredder. Once the GFRP materials were processed, the GFRP was mechanically sieved to compare different sizes.
