The silicone plastic block (SPB) has been created by Rhino Machines and R+D Studio as an eco-friendly building solution that aims to make use of materials that would otherwise go to waste. The bricks are crafted from a blend of materials including 80% recycled sand waste/foundry dust along with 20% mixed plastic waste. This positions the bricks as being a strong yet sustainable solution for use in construction to achieve projects in a more eco-friendly manner.
The silicone plastic block are reported to be 2.5-times stronger than conventional clay bricks, while using 80% less natural resources in their production. The bricks could help to solve waste issues in India and still accommodate the needs of developers with premium quality products.
