Interlocking Block making process does not involve any burning of blocks and are instead water cured. Blocks can be made on site reducing transportation cost and energy. The Raw material used are locally available. A suitable blend is created using minimal cement.
Blocks have low embodied energy and are thermally efficient thus returning savings on energy consumption and cost The interlocking masonry is largely dry stacked and use minimal cement and sand in mortar. Blocks have pre-pointed beveled edges and exposed brick finish obviating the need of plaster or minimal plaster if required.
Thus interlocking blocks and resultant masonry makes a Green Building facilitator. One can achieve suitable rating points by using ABT (Appropriate Building Technology)
If you are planning a green building, require building material or set up a business that can claim carbon credits under CDM, these blocks are Eco – correct!
