The construction sector has access to various building blocks, but a new study aims to utilize wastepaper as an alternative material for building blocks. The study focuses on creating lightweight composite blocks and utilizing wastepaper for low-cost production. The aim is to determine the properties of papercrete wall panels, including weight, compressive strength, water absorption, heat resistance, and hardness, by incorporating wastepaper. Papercrete provides an effective way to recycle paper waste into inexpensive papercrete wall panel walls that are strong, offer high sound absorption, insulation, and aesthetic appeal. The study involved adding 10%, 20%, and 30% paper pulp to concrete and casting the papercrete wall panels in different trial mixes, then comparing the results to conventional papercrete wall panel and concrete. The use of paper pulp in concrete was found to be cost-effective, lightweight, eco-friendly, and can contribute to solving solid waste management problems, leading to low-cost housing.
