Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic hydrocarbon polymer made from the monomer styrene that also makes a brick denser. The Wood ash from burned wood are usually used by the gardeners as a good source of potash. Wood ash has an ability of making the bricks lighter than the usual clay bricks. Additional wood ash is better than coal ash, because coal ash has a dangerous chemicals that may harm human. The goal of this study is to lessen the ballpen barrels and wood ash that are not disposed properly and make this in a creative way. Five test was conducted to determine the potential of polystyrene and wood ash namely water absorption test, drop test, efflorescence test, compressive test and heat resistance test. Based from the data gathered, it concluded that polystyrene from ballpen barrel and wood ash with the ratio of 50% Cement, 25% Wood Ash, 25% Ballpen Barrels is effective additives in production of lightweight</p> Vandon Borela Jezreel Matthew M.

The originality of the work was the application of the unconventional technique of microwave heating through a predominantly direct heating procedure. The product foamed at 908 ºC had a very fine porous structure (pore size between 0.05-0.20 mm) and a compressive strength above the usual level of foam glass gravels (7.8 MPa).</em> <em>The apparent density of 0.28 g/cm<sup>3</sup> corresponding to a bulk density of 0.20 g/cm<sup>3</sup> and the thermal conductivity of 0.075 W/m·K ensures the thermal insulating character of the material required for use in the specific field of applications of foam glass gravel. The manufacturing process had an excellent energy efficiency, the specific energy consumption decreasing up to 0.70 kWh/kg.</em></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Lucian Paunescu Copyright (c) 2021 Journal La Multiapp https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ 2021-03-09 2021-03-09 2 1 20 28 10.37899/journallamultiapp.v2i1.302
