Resumen : Abstract: Within the framework of the research project on the recycling of plastic waste from 500 ml bottles of water, soft drinks and flavored waters with the objective of using them as materials and / or elements incorporated into construction processes as a viable alternative that allows contribute to improve the internal environmental quality of housing at social risk in an economic and sustainable way. The possibility of managing and giving use to the quantity of plastic bottles circulating in our faculties which currently end up in sanitary landfills without utility was tested. In order to carry out the technology transfer the project was linked to CEFEDER, where with the development of professional practices in solidarity -PPSo- it was agreed to collect data from surveys conducted by students from the EETPI No. 2076 Private Technical Education School located in the "San Francisquito" neighborhood with its subsequent analysis and interpretation. The task developed focused on services, infrastructure and quality of life conditions of neighborhood residents, adopting a study radius. From the analysis of the data obtained and linking to the research object, it was found the possibility of reproducing and improving a device provided by the students of the institution to crush bottles for daily consumer drinks whose material is plastic and then be introduced in construction processes as cladding elements in exterior walls to improve characteristics of their materiality. These improvements result in better thermal and hydraulic insulation. The analysis of the situation allowed us to find a possible solution for the plastic waste of our faculty, of the School, of the Neighborhood and to provide the most needy sectors with a solution to improve the inner wellbeing of their habitats with a low cost and appropriate techniques users of the practice. To himself with the report of the ODSA, elevated by the Argentine Catholic University, denominated "multidimensional poverty", those data were crossed with those obtained by the students in their surveys, showing the same characteristics in terms of habitat conditions and quality of life in other provinces and territories of large cities. As active members of the UCA community, being observers and actors committed to their vision and mission we see ourselves in the duty to manage our waste and provide technical solutions to the most vulnerable sectors. The scope of this research was focused on the field of survey and analysis of similar experiences, research on materials that are marketed and construction systems that have now incorporated recycled plastics as raw materials or inputs. The results that they have obtained for the purpose of establishing comparative plans are taken into account. We progressed in deepening theoretical-methodological content by designing a feasible proposal to execute, which should be consolidated into a prototype that allows us to test its performance verifying that the theoretical statement is fulfilled in the real event or that it should be adjusted on the practice concrete.
