Low carbon bricks developed using construction and demolition waste for energy-efficient walling envelopes

What is the News? Scientists from the Indian Institute of Science(IISc) have developed an energy-efficient carbon brick called ‘Low-C Bricks’. What are Low-C Bricks? Low-C Bricks are low carbon bricks developed using construction and demolition waste (CDW) and alkali-activated binders. These bricks do not require high-temperature firing. They also avoid the use of high-energy materials… Continue reading Low carbon bricks developed using construction and demolition waste for energy-efficient walling envelopes
