Building a better future with cleaner bricks

Workers packing the fired bricks

01.11.2013 - 31.10.2017

Clay brick production in South Africa produces large emissions of greenhouse gases due to the use of old, energy-inefficient clamp firing systems. To solve this problem SDC is supporting the South-South technology transfer of the Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln. This energy-efficient technology considerably reduces coal consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by half. The first pilot plant was inaugurated in September 2011 in Jeffrey’s Bay, Eastern Cape.

South Africa accounts for more than 60 percent of emissions in Africa, making it the highest greenhouse gas (GHG) emitter on the continent and one of the world’s highest in per capita emissions. The building sector is an important contributor to pollution. This fast growing sector is the third-largest sector for GHG emissions in South Africa, contributing approximately 23 percent of total emissions if cement and brick production is included.
