Author(s):

Abhishek Chanchal and Ritesh Jain

Abstract:
Since ages, bricks have been used and made majorly from clay. To save excessive usage of clay, one might think of possibility of usage of various types of waste products in the production of bricks with partial replacement of clay in the manufacturing process. Waste products may vary from place to place and may include plastic, glass, rubber, fly ash, construction material, sewage sludge and MSW. From past studies, it was found that wastes of various types such as municipal MSW incineration fly ash, paper sludge, agricultural waste, industrial waste (sewage, sludge, bagasse), sawdust wastes and limestone dustwastes and coconut shell powder have been generated and increasing day by day. As such they can be used for the production of bricks by replacing clay partially.
