Original Habla Zig-Zag Kiln Technology
Addressing Urgent Brick Industry Issues
Habla Zig-Zag Kiln Proven Results
The HZZK successfully replaced the high-polluting, energy intensive South African clamp kiln in 2016. Independent Energy Balance and Emissions reports show excellent results.
Independent Energy Balance and Emissions monitoring of the Habla Kilns produced outstanding results. The Habla Kiln reduced the energy consumption by 82% (compared to the Clamp Kiln), more than halved emissions of CO2 per brick, and reduced particulate matter emissions (PM) by over 90%.

Brick kilns are a major contributor to climate change and a significant source of CO2, GHG emissions and short-lived climate pollutants, particularly atmospheric black carbon. HZZK has shown how its energy-efficient, low carbon kilns could change lives and have a real impact in addressing climate change.
WINNER: UNAA Business Climate Action Award
The project is a successful example of a clean technology transfer project from a developed country to a developing country… The HZZK model can be replicated throughout the developing world to curb brick sector-related black carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
