Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 What is styrofoam? Why is so dangerous? -The biggest environmental health concern is the danger associated with styrene.-Styrene is classified as a possible human carcinogen by the EPA and by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). -Toxic chemicals leach out of these products into the food that they contain.-Health effects. -Negatively impacts on the ozone layer and global warming.-The process of making styro creates large amounts of liquid and solid waste.-The National Bureau of Standards Center for Fire Research identified 57 chemical byproducts released during combustion of styro. -Can choke animals and clog their digestive systems. -It takes to desintegrate between 100 and 1000 years.-Styrofoam waste end up in our landfills and waterways,which is then consumed by wildlife. Statistical data Solution Proposal BUILDING MATERIAL MADE WITH STYROFOAM A combination of cement, gravel, sand and little styrofoam spheres will produce a resistant, thermal, light, cheap and waterproof building material. Once we have this material we would be able to make a kind of panel of it,this would be produce in a similar way as the cardboard or other sheets/panels.-As ceiling for the rainy days-In the windows on the sunny days. -It doesn't have to be permanently placed.-Manny other purposes.

There is only one business that recollects 400 tons of styrofoam (0.1 % of the total annual consumption) Plastics are the least product being recycled each year. About 6% of every plastic product in Mexico is styrofoam. In 2011 Mexico consumed 356,000 tons of styrofoam. Americans throw away 25 billion styrofoam coffee cups every yearIn New York City alone, 850,000 Styrofoam trays are used per dayEach year American throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam cups. Its polystyrene, a hard petroleum-based plastic, with insulation properties. This is a lightweight material, about 95% air , used in the manufacture of plastics, rubber and resins. Irritation of the:-Skin-Eyes-Upper respiratory tractGastrointestinal effects Chronic exposure affects the central nervous system Affects reproductive systems ¿How can the building material be made with styro? Design Uses Benefits Environmental Social Economic It will be used in rural communities, where there isnt enough material for building houses. These constructions protect the people against low temperatures and rains. It also make conscious in people to recycling styro for good causes. It promotes the styrofoam recycling, decreasing the amounts of waste andchemical emissions. Its very cheap because half of the materials are recycled and the other can be produced by the own communities.It also helps people byproducing new jobs.
