Brick Industry: A High Emitter of CO2

The brick industry has a devastating environmental impact with brick kilns being extremely high emitters of CO2.

Converting as little as 10% of the kilns would save 55 million tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere annually. 

Converting all brick kilns in developing countries to energy-efficient Habla Zig-Zag Technology would remove approximately 500 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere annually. In comparison, the global airline industry is estimated to release a total of approximately 915 million tonnes of CO2.
