is made from natural clay fired in a kiln. As such, it’s environmentally friendly, and can be recycled.
Bricks and panels can be repurposed or they can be reduced to rubble for use in the construction of roads.
In many places, the move toward renewable energy is not happening fast enough to contribute meaningfully to the fight against climate change.
cannot offset that entirely, but its excellent thermal insulation properties mean it can help mitigate the heat-island effect of larger buildings, and it can lower energy consumption.
During the manufacturing process, the clay is fired at such high temperatures it becomes almost fireproof. For this reason, the bricks can withstand large, intense fires for longer than almost any other building material.
This is not to say that they are entirely fireproof, but that their durability even in a raging inferno is remarkable.
