A world where plastic is no longer an environmental and biological hazard, but a valuable resource being recycled and reused for improving our quality of life.
Crescent Housing to be a significant contributor to a better and greener world.
Our vision is a better everyday life for each of us, by learning how to better take advantage of the world resources with focus on recycling and reuse.
In order to be successful in creating a cleaner and greener world it is very important that the solution creates normality and prosperity within the local community.
By making the world population an active part of the solution, we turn the table and change man's role as consumer and polluter to become the creator of prosperous economies, jobs and safe homes and living areas out of what had previously been waste and pollution.
By empowerment through entrepreneurship, creating local jobs and community prosperity, Crescent creates a solution for solving two of the world’s biggest future challenges.
That is what Crescent represents, that is what Crescent Housing does.

The worlds plastic production is increasing. In 1950 1,5 million metric ton plastic were produced. In 2016 it was produced 320 million tons. By 2034 it is expected to double the 2016 numbers. By 2015 it was a total of 7,8 bn metric tons produced worldwide. Only about 9% is recycled and 12% is used for heat. A total of 79% is located in the nature or in landfills.
Each year 10 million tons of plastic ends up in the worlds oceans, this means approx. 8 million pieces of plastics goes into the ocean each day. Which means there is 5,25 TRILLION pieces of plastics in the ocean today.
- Populationgrowth -
World population today is 7,6 bn. By 2050 it is estimated to be 9,8 bn and 11 bn by 2100. The population in Africa will rise from 1,3 bn today to 2,5 in 2050 and 4,2 bn by 2100. By 2100 Africa will have 37% of the worlds labourforce and 40% of the worlds children.
If we estimate a household being 6 persons, it means 200 million new houses will be in demand in Africa by 2050 and 600 millions by 2100!
There is a high demand of houses, jobs, energy and food in Africa. supplies. By using the Plastic waste as raw materials to deal the problems of lack of residential units for a growing population, as well as employing the locals, we will also obtain a very positive effect in important markets.
By using one problem, plastic, to tackle another problem, housing for a growing population, as well as jobs within production and building these houses, we are able to help deal with two of the biggest problems in our time, and the times that will follow.
