Local Dump (TGW) – A Dutch engineer has come up with an idea to solve two of the world’s most pressing environmental problems: solidify waste in a concrete type material and using the resulting slabs to build pyramids that not only deal with waste disposal but could become tourist traps and major landmarks for our cities.
He says that waste should first be immobilized by mixing with cement and immobilizing additives to reduce the possibility of toxic materials leaching into the earth and ground water.
He goes to suggest that the cement could then be made into slabs, which would be used to build pyramids. These pyramids would act as tourist attractions.
Okay, so past the craziness
Schuiling’s idea could be applied a little more sanely in other ways: use the cement for foundations of homes or to build roads.
