Ecostruct

Composite building materials (panels) with plastic bottles inside

Pitch

The idea is to recycle plastic bottles to produce composite building panels which can be used to build cheap and eco-friendly light constructions. The know-how is the structure of the panel which includes bottles with the air inside producing a panel that is five times lighter than concrete but just as strong, and has better insulating qualities. The project addresses two crucial problems – pollution and poverty. Composite panels with plastic bottles inside can be used to quickly assemble permanent or temporary homes or business facilities.
