Text below and image is from Eternally Solar / EarthBagBuild, who has a new, very impressive site with lots of great information and ideas. I haven’t had time to read their entire site, but this sounds like the largest earthbag project in the world. One intriguing aspect is their FAQ page explains how their system uses a “unique patented design that allow for interlocking of horizontal layers greatly adding to the stability of the wall.” A big thanks to Diane Boles for the heads up.
“The advantages of this construction system as detailed below have been embraced by a multinational corporation such as Engen Petroleum International, with whom we are developing a new sustainable model for service stations in central and east Africa.
Engen has recognised that the ‘triple bottom line’ is squarely addressed by the EarthBag system, through it being environmentally, economically and socially sustainable – lower impact, lower cost and job-creating.”
