Abstract: There is growing interest in the use of recycled materials in the building sector as a way to reduce waste and improve environmental sustainability. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a thermoplastic polymer that has attracted the attention of researchers due to its application in the building industry. In the recent past, many studies have reported on the application of PET aggregates in structural lightweight concrete. This paper presents a review of the findings of 20 studies conducted between 2010 and 2022 randomly. The preliminary findings highlighted include the method of production of PET aggregates and their physical/thermal properties. The review extended further to focus on the extent of incorporation, physical properties, strength properties, and durability of concrete with PET aggregates.
