A Mexican company is looking to establish a facility here in Guyana that will use recycled waste to make building materials to construct houses for local consumption.

This was revealed by Housing Minister Collin Croal on Friday. He was at the time updating the media on preparations for the upcoming International Building Expo 2022 which will be held at the National Stadium Tarmac, Providence, next month.

According to Minister Croal, the event will feature several innovative technologies in the housing construction sector such as 3D printing as well as the model home built entirely from recycled materials. He noted that in total, there will be eight types of model houses on display at the exposition.

“We will also have another display of a low-income house that will have a design that caters to the environmental impact. So, this will be a house that will be made of 100 percent recycled materials. It’s a special factory that is intended to be established here and so on display, this house will have a combination of trash basically from the dumpsite – the landfill site – using a unique process, melted down but will be waterproofed,” he stated.

The recycled model house will be about 600 square feet and can be put together in just five days.
