Inhabitat Plastic Concrete: Building Bricks Made From Landfill Waste

Recent RPI Masters of Architecture graduate Henry Miller has devised a
way to reuse waste plastic as an aggregate in cement, circumventing the
energy-intensive process of plastic recycling. By grinding up
landfill-bound plastic and mixing it with portland cement, Miller was
able to create a material just as strong as traditional concrete made
with mined aggregate. The ingenious solution netted miller first place
in the "Component Category" of the second annual Concrete Thinking for a
Sustainable World competition.
