Introduction to the wonders of bio-crete and why its use may mitigate environmental destruction and create more comfortable low-carbon buildings.
Yesterday’s blog post was about making bricks with rice hull ash. Today we’ll review a few benefits of using rice hull ash in non-Portland cement products such as bricks and geopolymer, and give a formula for making rice hull ash bricks with no cement. Please note how other agro wastes such as sugar cane ash peanut shell ash and coconut ash could also be used. Use what is low cost and locally available.
