A group of engineers from the Heriot-Watt University in Scotland started a company called Kenoteq, which designed an environmentally friendly brick.
This new brick is called the K-Briq, and 90% of it is made with construction waste. Furthermore, it's production doesn't require a kiln, and generates only one tenth the carbon emissions of conventional bricks.
These bricks were invented out of concern that modern construction methods are not sustainable on the long term, because it requires raw resources, fossil fuels, and other materials, that generates carbon emissions. The K-Briq mostly uses demolition waste, in other words, it is recycled.
These new bricks could revolutionize the modern construction industry, making it more sustainable, and help reduce carbon emissions.
