Abstract: Paper bricks are key construction materials for buildings in general and for low cost housing in particular. To keep up with sustainable development movements and increasing competitive pressure in the industry, building materials of the upcoming have to be of lesser weight, more force capable and lower cost. The use of recycled materials is also critical for longterm sustainability. The intention of this paper is to develop lightweight paper brick from waste paper with lowest amount. The paper was hydrating and spin to obtain paper mash slurry after mixing with cement, and cast to shape. Compressive strength and water absorption were found. The results showed that investigational bricks are upper compressive force, water absorption when compared to those of existing masonry blocks. Quick cost estimation indicated that bricks could be made at a lower cost than those available in the market. It is fulfilled that paper bricks as of waste paper possess smart property and high-quality strengths. Sustainable and rate issues are also addressed. The result show the arrangement of paper dissipate and cement provides improved results for produce economical latest bricks.

Keywords: Sustainability, Paper Waste, Paper-pulp Slurry, Water Absorption.
Scope of the Article: Water Supply and Drainage
