Light Weight Block Plant (CLC)
ADVANTAGES O F (CLC) CELLULAR LIGHT WEIGHT BLOCKS
·CLC is remarkably eco-friendly. It saves depletion of the top soil, while at the same time it can actually use fly-ash- an industrial waste - as one of its major constituents. The production process of CLC or its use does not release any harmful effluents to ground, water or air. CLC, due to its low weight is ideal for making partitions. The use of CLC for this purpose will reduce the need for plywood partitions. This consequently will result in reduction in deforestation and will benefit environment.
·CLC Blocks are very light in weight - Density ranging from 400 to 1800 Kg/m3 can be produced as required. Three times less weight then clay or fly ash brocks.
·CLC Blocks are excellent for Thermal and Sound insulation which keeps the house cool in Summer and warm in Winter saving energy/electricity for cooling and heating. Thermal insulations as a 100mm thick CLC wall, the equivalent thickness of dense concrete wall would have to be more than 5 times thicker and ten times heavier.
