Worldwide an immense quantity of glass waste is produced in the remaining glass medicine containers. We propose to recycle the partial-empty glass containers as replacement of aggregates, especially sand, from plastering mortars. Several formulation of plastering mortars without and with glass of variable granulation, without and with antibiotic drugs was prepared. For each formulation seven prisms were casts. Pairs of two prisms were tested at 7, 14 and 28 days after preparation by measuring the mechanical strengths at elongation and compression. In the seventh prism a pair of humidity and temperature sensors was placed in order to monitor the hydration and dehydration processes to characterize the effect of aggregates replacement by glass waste. Advanced 1H NMR relaxometry and diffusometry measurement were performed on samples parts resulted from mechanical tests at 7, 14 and 28 days after preparation. Then the samples were sunken in water and measured after a full hydration of plaster mortar stone. The experimental data were analyzed by inverse Laplace transform and the distributions of transverse relaxation time T2 were obtained.
