Costa Rican startup makes cement blocks with recycled ocean-bound plastic

from Plastics Technology

A new initiative in Costa Rica seeks to make a big difference in diverting ocean-bound plastics off the shorelines and from entering the ocean. The Center for Regenerative Design and Collaboration (CRDC) came up with the new concept to use mixed, dirty plastics, which are cleaned/pelletized, to become aggregate in high-quality building blocks and construction materials. CRDC partnered with Costa Rica construction manufacturer Pedregal to develop this new product, called Ecoblock. This new aggregate — consisting of 80 percent waste plastic and 20 percent organic additive — is designed to mix with cement. more
