Life Hypobrick will implement a new manufacturing process by producing new bricks for construction using waste as a raw material and using technologies that eliminate the firing stage and greenhouse gases emissions.
The partners of Life Hypobrick are In Life Hypobrick. are the companies Ladrillos Mora, S.L.; Recycling, Consulting & Services, S.L. (RCS) Schlagmann Poroton GmbH & Co. and the University of Nuremberg (Technische Hochschule Nürnberg) under the coordination of ITC.
The objective of the Life Hypobrick.project is to develop building bricks made from waste, where the firing stage will not exist. As it is known, this stage consumes almost 90% of the energy used in the entire ceramic manufacturing process. For this reason, Life Hypobrick has developed a new process applying the process known as alkaline activation, by which the materials, instead of going through a firing stage, are «cured», thus saving that 90% of the energy consumed in the firing.
