Developing countries like India, where urban sector is drowning with plastic waste and rural sector with lack of sanitation facilities. Lack of large-scale utilization of plastic from the urban population has been a challenge for civic administrators. The state is same as the rural population in terms of adequate sanitation infrastructure due to the cost of raw materials and lack of skilled workers. This Project aims for potential solution to address these issues in concern; i.e. transforming urban plastic waste into interlocking construction blocks and then to construct low-cost, rapid built toilets. In this specific project we are trying to address both these factors with a single solution. Initial studies and feasibility in one of the villages has been carried out. THe aim for the current phase of the project was to finalise the process design, work on the manufacturing and test the prototype.
