The project aims to produce building materials for affordable housing.
The target materials are wood plastic composites and wood-cement composites, utilising only waste materials (recycled plastic, fly ash from coal power plants) and wood from invasive trees.
These materials can be used for insulation, flooring, cupboards, as well as structural components.
