Reuse of urban solid waste, Brick soil cement, Materials through recycling, Triple bottom line.


Investigate the reuse of urban solid waste (USW) becomes important in the present day due to environmental problems. Develop an experimental project using a mixture of soil-cement bricks with traces without addition of USW and dashes with addition of USW, provides procedures for stress tests after the molding and healing of these bricks, and consider the feasibility of using element, in order to determine what best trait, stabilization and method of healing. The proposal proved to be feasible and possible to reduce the amount of non-renewable material in soil-cement bricks production incorporating tire rubber shavings and dust of marbles and granites. By proposing a dash is ideal for the production of soil-cement bricks, provides subsidies for the replicability of this product, as well as the use of tire chips and powder of marble and granite, to minimize the use of these materials by recycling, showing be compatible with the existing rules requiring. Use grated tire minimizes your disposal in the environment and through the insertion of marble and granite powder in the mixture, offers better resistance to compression, bricks being viable production of this product with this material.
