dc.description.abstract Ecobuild: Plastic Bricks for Sustainable Housing is centered around a proposed new company, Ecobuild, which recycles plastic waste and processes it into bricks that can be used to build sustainable houses. This project takes an existing technology, which has already been proven successful as a business venture in other parts of the world, and adapts it for launch in South Africa, followed by an international expansion to Ghana and Mozambique. It presents itself on three fronts: first, as a new, low-cost, and ecologically friendly way of building houses and closing the housing gap; second, as a solution to the mounting waste management crisis in South Africa and across the entire African continent, a pressing issue with dire health and safety consequences for the general public; and third, as a solution to the housing crisis that has resulted from rapid urbanization. The ultimate goal of this project is to create a positive social, economic, and environmental impact in our locations, while also remaining profitable and viable as a business.
