    Abstract :

    Abstract- Replacement of a part of pavement by waste rubber can have multifarious environmental and ecological impacts on the society. A lot of waste generated is put to better use and a small replacement can make a big difference. Some physical and chemical properties are compared with original concrete pavements and the results are used to find out the optimum content and the type of material to be added. This rubberized concrete can be useful for pavements as well as for non-load bearing units in construction. An attempt to modify the material is carried out using various empirical relations and case studies from previously conducted experiments. Fibres made of Crumbed Rubber (CR) can be used in various constructive systems as a material. This can show a lot of promise in terms of environmental conservation and sustainable technology.This paper posits a solution related to the problem of disposal and dumping of industrial waste. A large amount of solid waste generated is put to better use and utilized by a small replacement with a component of concrete. This in turn leads to a huge amount of cost saving and has a positive environmental impact.
