The green building industry is always on the move, Here, innovation and originality are the words d order ’, innovative bricks to beer can change many things.
Closer looking for alternative solutions and dell's ’ environment, you are recently experiencing in Portugal, by researchers at the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar, led by Professor Eduardo Ferraz, a new blend to make bricks to beer environmentally sustainable in order to delete the currently added polystyrene among modern bricks ingredients.
The results obtained so far have demonstrated the possibility of replacing normal bricks to’clay red with these bricks to beer; a new type of brick that promises greater sustainability and improved energy efficiency.
We specify that the clay bricks are used always in’construction for reasons of ease of procurement of raw materials and to the simplicity of the production process.
Unfortunately in recent productions of these building materials also adds a certain percentage of polystyrene (a polymer Synthetic commonly called Styrofoam), that seemed to increase the heat capacity of the material.
Polystyrene processing is highly detrimental to the environment ’, Why make a ’ high emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during production ’.
Precisely because of this, the European Union ’, in order to discourage the use and restrict the ’ ’ environmental impact, enacted a law that imposes a fairly high taxation towards this polymer.
It was therefore a viable alternative that would allow to have building materials by thermal characteristics need not go today weigh too much on the environment ’. Studies by researchers in Portugal it seems that l have found ’.
The ’ use of malt barley and d ’ corn semolina mixed in ’ mixture and very popular such as brewing waste, seem valid substitutes for polystyrene's function.
If added as a percentage of 5% the rest of the raw materials used in the production of bricks, guarantee, a reduction of the thermal dispersion equal to the 28%. Even the presence of grain in corn semolina, increase the internal porosity of the bricks and all this air trapped inside in the form of bubbles, contrasts very effectively heat dispersion of the material.
The original idea of the ’ Portuguese researchers would also recycle intelligently within otherwise intended, in part as a component in feed for animals, and the remaining dedicated to landfill.
There is, however,, a rather discouraging the use of these bricks to beer that is the bad smell; It seems that this process, Eco Pur, produces a nauseating stench. Bill Daidone, of Acme Brick Company, one of the most important American brick factories, said he had to stop manufacturing evidence precisely because smells that seem unbearable for anyone.
Polytechnic Institute scholars instead argue that all unpleasant emanations, Although actually present, You disappear after cooking and finished product.
The whole thing would be sustainable and bearable by munendoli workers of special templates and more winding l ’ working environment.
For the brick to beer, compared to other solutions already come into the market, We do not know when, If you ever will be introduced and what building applications might have. In any case, the constant search for alternative solutions of ’ 's environment bode well in a really greener future.
