Transforming Plastic Waste into Sustainable Construction Solutions



NUST Islamabad


Environmental Challenges in Pakistan

Pakistan faces severe environmental challenges, including air pollution from construction activities and the accumulation of plastic waste. Urban centers like Karachi and Lahore suffer from hazardous smog episodes caused by construction-related pollutants. Additionally, the nation generates approximately 3.9 million tonnes of plastic waste annually, leading to environmental degradation and threats to aquatic life. Urgent innovative solutions are needed to address these pressing environmental issues.

Innovative Eco-friendly Construction Materials

Ecobricks repurposes plastic waste, particularly LDPE and Multi-layered Packaging (MLP), into eco-friendly construction materials like tiles, pavers, and bricks. By substituting plastic for cement in construction materials, we mitigate plastic pollution and reduce manufacturing costs. Our method significantly reduces carbon emissions compared to traditional manufacturing, aligning with environmentally sustainable practices.
