What is it about?
Ultrasonic test performed to determine the homogeneity of polymer-cement concrete with PET waste (derived from soft drinks PET bottles) and correlation between the internal structure of composites and their mechanical properties. The concretes contained various amounts of PET.

Why is it important?
The research fits into the circular economy because waste from everyday human activity was used as a substitute for non-renewable raw materials and the material carbon footprint of the composite was reduced.
