This summary is based on the Draft South African Carbon Tax Regulations published by National Treasury on 30 November 2015.

The Energy Guideline is one of three publications developed with the aim of assisting the South African brick sector to reduce its energy costs and

During the Eurocode summit held in 2008 hosted by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS),  the benefits for adopting Eurocodes in South Afric

The 2016 Brick Sustainability Report, provides a detailed account of how the clay brick sector in the UK has performed against its collective sustainability strategy, and demonstrates the progress made since the launch of the first sustainability report in 2001. It reports against the targets set through the collaborative Resource Efficiency Action Plan, and shows significant progress particularly in the areas of waste and water consumption. The robustness of energy and carbon data contained in this report is much improved on early figures.

This document is an excellent example of the type of Sustainability Report the South African clay brick sectors plans to produce in the year ahead.

OTAL Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the brick industry to quantify the environmental impact of clay bricks.

THe model kiln provided real-world conditions for firing the clay brick, together with an accurate measurement system for measuring air emissions. The kiln was located far from general activities to ensure the minimum of contamination from other sources.

The clamp kiln is the major clay brick production technique in South Africa.
