Energy Efficient Brick Firing Technologies
Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln (VSBK)
Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln (VSBK) is an energy efficient and environmentally friendly brick firing technology. It has a permanent building structure with a vertical shaft or shafts in the center where the bricks are loaded from the top and unloaded from the bottom.

Major advantages of VSBK over traditional technologies:
  • VSBK consumes 30-40% less energy and emits 70% less particulate matters than traditional BTK technology
  • It is weatherproof thus can be operated 12 months a year
  • It offers safe working conditions for the workers. Health parameters such as 'respiratory particulate matters & heat stress' meet international safety standards.

Services offered by us:

  • Feasibility study for establishment of VSBK technology
  • Technical assistance and capacity building support in design, construction and operation
  • Technical assistance in green brick production following best practices
  • Research and development support to improve energy and environmental performances
  • Training of occupational health and safety prevention
  • Services for social action with psycho social approach to make brick industries socially responsible and empowerment of workers
  • Energy use and environmental monitoring
Improved Fixed Chimney (IFC)
It is an improved version of Fixed Chimney BTK (FCBTK) technology that is prevalent in South Asia. It is based on continuous firing cycle. Unlike common FCBTK it saves more energy, has better environmental performance because of lesser surface heat loss and improved operating practices such as zigzag brick setting, internal fueling, control fuel feeding etc.

Major advantages of IFC over FCBTK:
  • IFC consumes 10-25% less energy and emits about 40% less particulate matters than FCBTK
  • Improves fired brick properties such as color, ring and strength
  • Lower brick production cost than in FCBTK

Services offered by us:

  • Feasibility study of site and technical assistance in design, construction and operation of IFC
  • Technical assistance in green brick production with internal fuel
  • Design of forced draught system including flue duct and fan design
  • Technical support in mechanizing the production line including design and development of mechanized coal feeding, green brick production and fire brick handling
  • Training of occupational health and safety prevention
  • Services for social action with psycho social approach to make brick industries socially responsible and empowerment of workers
  • Energy use and environmental monitoring
