BRICRO brick - new environmentally friendly and insulative building material


Carbon footprint is broadly defined as carbon dioxide (CO2) caused by an individual, event, organization or product. Fired solid clay brick is a popular building material, which produces enourmous emissions of CO2 because of the extremely high temperature needed for its production.
BRICRO Brick is made of saw-dust bonded with bacteria. It is produced at ambient temperature, 100% organic and environmental friendly. Production of BRICRO Bricks will reduce CO2 emissions in brick production industry by up to 80%.
BRICRO Brick fulfils Eurocode construction norms as a construction material and, because of its spongy structure, as a thermal insulation. Specific BRICRO brick shape also provides earthquake resistance.
