High Emitter of CO2
The brick industry has a devastating environmental impact with brick kilns being extremely high emitters of CO2.
Converting as little as 10% of the kilns would save 55 million tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere annually.
Converting all brick kilns in developing countries to energy efficient Habla Zig-Zag Technology would remove approximately 500 million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere annually. In comparison the global airline industry is estimated to release a total of approximately 895 million tonnes of CO2.
