National Physical Laboratories has developed a method of making tiles with used plastic bottles and LDPE bags. With these tiles, you may build small structures such as waterless toilets.
Recycling of Plastic Wastes into Tiles for Structure Designing for Societal Usage Summary: Disposal of Plastic Waste is a major problem. It is non-biodegradable & it mainly consists of polyethylene plastic bags, bottles etc. Burning of these waste plastic bags causes environmental pollution. The main objective of the present project is to utilize waste plastic bags for designing of materials for utilization of tiles in building of toilets and rooms for general public for societal benefits. Applications: These waste plastic bags tiles can be used for designing structures for societal usage like toilets or rooms Advantages: The advantage of the innovation is the utilization of waste plastic bags and bottles in the form of tiles which can be used for designing the structure for making a smart toilet or any other structure for societal usage. One of such waterless toilet structures made at CSIR-NPL is shown in adjacent figure.
