GIST: While manufacturing concrete blocks put in a plastic bottle with all unwanted waste in it.
There are now 46,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometre of the world's oceans, killing a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals each year. Worse still, there seems to be nothing we can do to clean it up. Plastic bags are everywhere, and while they are convenient, they cause significant environmental damage all over the world.
Every year we consume more than 700 billion plastic bags. Of these, just 1 per cent is recycled and the rest end up in our environment or in landfill.
Reason, if it costs $200 to process and recycle 1 ton of plastic bags, it can then be sold on the commodities market for only $32, so it isn’t going to happen. NOT YET.
We can recycle plastic but it's too costly. Neither can we dump it, it’s too harmful. Presenting HTWB. It’s a very simple product. Believe me, if this comes in existence, there will be no turning back.
I made two blocks, for testing purpose-
A. Traditional block & B. HTWB
As we can see clearly both are identical visually.
Therefore making the HTWB was not difficult but tricky. Further, testing and correcting the brick is of decisive concern.
Tests such as Water content, Mixing Proportion, Strength, Shrinkage has to be held further.
The results were impressive, when compared to a traditional brick. The video gives all the details.
