From Water to Wonder Using sugar cane ash, lime powder, fly-ash and industrial waste as our raw materials, we have developed a method of manufacturing and developing compressed green bricks. The purpose is to carry out a pilot-scale manufacturing project and scale-up into mainstream brick production, i.e., clay and cement concrete bricks. We intend to address the challenges experienced by the agricultural and industrial sectors by minimizing unmanaged waste and landfill scarcity.
