Cement is the main component in concrete, and the production of cement accounts for 8% of the world’s CO2 emission. This project investigates green concrete using cement substitutes such as waste paper, and aims to reduce paper waste in our community! Term 1 will mainly focus on developing a reliable methodology for making papercrete. In Term 2, we will be producing papercrete and testing out its properties.

Our team has been conducting extensive research for the production of Papercrete! We have also been conducting an Impact Assessment for this project, to clarify the environmental impacts of Papercrete. With Covid-Safe procedures in mind, we plan to run thorough tests on variations of Papercrete this month to see whether they truly meet our sustainability goals.
