The increasing technological development associated with profound changes in the contemporary way of life has generated tailings increased volumes, among them is the plastic waste. Recycling is an alternative to reduce the environmental impact of discarded plastic raw material. Another way is the use of these materials in ambient constructions. When building this type of environment should worry about thermal comfort. Studies of thermal comfort aim to analyze and establish the conditions necessary for the evaluation and design of a suitable thermal environment to human activities and occupation. This proposal aims to build a fuzzy systems based mathematical model that will evaluate the thermal comfort of an environment built with recyclable materials on the premises of Fatec of Presidente Prudente. This environment was named Pet House and had as main material the pet bottles. After the analysis, we intend to obtain other results of scientific and pedagogical character. And later, it is expected that it will be passed as a venue for the dissemination of results.
