Fly Ash Bricks Product Code Quality and Standards Uploaded on Introduction Fly Ash bricks are made

of fly ash, lime, gypsum and sand. These can be extensively used in all building constructional activities similar to that of common burnt clay bricks. The fly ash bricks are comparatively lighter in weight and stronger than common clay bricks. Since fly ash is being accumulated as waste material in large quantity near thermal power plants and creating serious environmental pollution problems, its utilisation as main raw material in the manufacture of bricks will not only create ample opportunities for its proper and useful disposal but also help in environmental pollution control to a greater extent in the surrounding areas of power plants. In view of superior quality and eco-friendly nature, and government support the demand for Fly Ash Bricks has picked up. Market Potential The country consumes about 180 billion tonnes bricks, exhausting approximately 340 billion tonnes of clay every year and about 5000 acres of top soil land is made unfertile for a long period. The Government is seriously concerned over soil erosion for production of massive quantities of bricks, in the background of enormous housing needs. The excellent engineering property and durability of fly ash brick enlarges its scope for application in building construction and development of infrastructure, construction of pavements, dams, tanks, under water works, canal lining and irrigation work etc. Enormous quantities of fly ash is available in and around thermal power stations in all the states. The demand of bricks could be met by establishing small units near thermal power stations and to meet the local demand with less transportation costs. Basis and Presumptions i. It is assumed that the unit will operate on single shift basis for 300 working days in a year. ii. The salary and wages for staff and labour has been taken into consideration on the basis of prevailing market rates. iii. To reach the full plant capacity, it requires 1 year after trial production. iv. Interest rate at 13% is considered in the project profile for both recurring and nonrecurring investment. v. Margin money will vary from 10- 25% depending upon the location and scheme adopted by the entrepreneur. : N.A : IS 12894:1990 : May 2007
