Abstract

Now a days, the construction industry consumes a large amount of cement that is a non-renewable resource. Our project aimed to utilize the waste paper as a construction material that constitutes a step towards sustainable development. Generally, a majority of abandoned paper waste is accumulated from countries all over the world causing certain series environmental problems. Our project deals with a detailed experimental study which investigates the use of on paper waste for producing low-cost and light weight composite blocks as building material. This experimental investigation has been carried out to optimization the mix for paper Crete bricks, based upon their compressive strength and tensile strength.
