Student team develops wastepaper pulp for insulating buildings

Speaking to Muscat Daily
, Safa Musabah al Ghafri, head of the team stated, “All five of us are pursuing civil engineering in HCT. We worked on a project Soundproofing and Heat Insulation Concrete (SHIC). We worked on the project for six months.”

Talking about the concept of the project, she stated, “Bricks employed for building are hollow which permit the heat to stay trapped. Filling these bricks with wastepaper pulp does not let the heat and sound in.

“We have tested it quite extensively and found to be quite useful. Our project won the first place in Nama Ambassadors Competition.”

Safa stated that the entire method is atmosphere-friendly. “We thank Nama Group and supervisor Omaima al Hosni for their support to the project.”

Speaking about future plans, she stated, “We aim to set up a company and work on more such projects.”

Other members of the team are Majda Amur al Khatri, Safiya Harib al Shamsi, Rasha Rashid al Huseini and Safana Saif al Maskari.
