Experimental and Analytical Study on Sustainable Sandwich Structures made from Recycled Plastic Core and PET FRP facing

The project seeks to discover the optimum design and commercialization strategy for newly developed sandwich structures derived from recycled plastic for the civil engineering sector. The sandwich structures are highly sustainable and could potentially consume large amounts of the rapidly produced plastic waste. The final sandwich product would have the potential to be used in various applications such as roof panels and exterior/interior walls of buildings. The project’s objectives will be met through experimental testing, analytical modelling, as well as participation in various business-development workshops and engagement with experts in the field.
