SALAZAR, Edgar A.; ARROYAVE, Juan F.  e  MORENO, Ivan Y.. Eco-Sustainable housing development for vulnerable population. Ing. compet. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.1, pp.249-259. ISSN 0123-3033.

The project consists of the installation of an environmentally sustainable housing module (In this project, for the "Kyrios" Foundation, Rehabilitation Center): the module was built with waste plastic materials discarded from industrial packaging processes. Different sustainable systems were installed (photovoltaic system, solar collector) to satisfy electricity and thermal energy demands. In order to satisfy the conditions of housing, different tests were performed on the construction material such as mechanical resistance, thermal and acoustic conductivity and permeability
