Increasing the use of non-fired building materials is a trend in many countries, including Việt Nam.
A number of enterprises have struggled to recycle ash and cinders from thermal power plants in order to manufacture non-fired adobe brick and non-flammable construction materials.
Việt Nam lacks control over non-fired brick quality despite the large number of such bricks produced in the country over the last five year, the Ministry of Construction said.
The demand for construction materials in the country is estimated to touch 30 to 33 billion bricks by 2020. Non-fired materials will account for 30 to 40 per cent of these bricks.
