House built from recycled plastic

tpr-housing-affresol.jpgIt’s now possible to build a whole house from recycled waste plastic and minerals, according to this article spotted by Linda Naylor in today’s Plastics & Rubber Weekly.

 

Construction of the affordable low carbon homes is from packaging and manufacturing waste, and each house consumes around 18 tonnes of waste material.

 

The technology has been developed by Affresol, and the first house has been ordered by Worcester Bosch, a manufacturer of heating and hot water systems, using plastic from the company’s recycled boilers.
