Sustainable Construction: Carbon-Negative Bricks and Brick Slips on Display at Greenbuild Expo 2012

Carbon negative bricks and brick slips developed by Encos Ltd will be on display on stand G3 at Greenbuild Expo 2012. This major sustainable refurbishment and building event will take place on 9 – 10 May at Manchester Central.

Encos bricks and brick slips are made from a combination of recovered aggregates and vegetable-oil-based binders. They are manufactured using a patented method which is based on research originally carried out at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds by Dr John Forth into the use of alternative binders in construction materials. The process consumes no water, and produces no waste.

Mark Nichols, CEO of Encos Ltd said:
“Our carbon negative masonry units fit in perfectly with the Greenbuild Expo sustainable refurbishment and building theme, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit, demonstrate and discuss the properties of our carbon-negative bricks and brick slips at this important sustainable construction event. Because we are close to coming to market, the timing is ideal to explain to delegates how our products can help improve the sustainability performance of new builds and in refurbishing properties.”
