1.1 About the Industrial Activity Fire clay bricks are produced in India in small or cottage scale brick kilns and Clamps, operates seasonally. The raw materials in the brick kilns include topsoil, coal, paddy husk, fly ash, wood & locally available agro wastes to some extent. There are large variations in quality of soils available in different parts of the country and also in brick manufacturing process. The Physicochemical properties of typical clay and fired bricks are as follows Physico-chemical properties of clays Particulars Value Clay (%) (< 2 µ) 16 - 25 Silt (%) (2 – 20 µ) 18 – 25 Sand (%) (> 20 µ) 51 – 65 Organic matter (%) 0.08 – 0.15 H 7.3 – 7.6 P Properties of Fired Clay Bricks Particulars Value 2) Comprehensive strength (Kg/cm 120 – 175 Water absorption (%) 12 - 16 Source: COINDS/16/1995-96, CPCB Based on the manufacturing process and operational process, brick kilns are categorized basically as follows: 1. Intermittent Kilns 2. Continuous Kilns Intermittent Kilns Intermittent kilns are those kilns in which green bricks are set, fired, cooled and then taken out of the kiln and either stocked or delivered. The process is then repeated with another change of green bricks. Intermittent kilns are very adaptable to changing market demands but not fuelefficient. These include clamps and down draught Kilns. Clamp Brick Kilns Clamp brick kilns are most primitive type of brick kilns since no permanent kiln structure is built. It consists of essentially a pile of green bricks inter spread with combustibles material. Normally, the clay from which the bricks are moulded also includes fuel material. The capacity of the clamp varies from 25,000 to 500,000 bricks. A flat dry area of land is first chosen and checkwork pattern of spread out, already burnt bricks were laid down in a desired length. Fuel in the form of cinder, coke or small pieces of coal is then spread between the check work bricks, covering the latter with a layer at least 20 cm thick. Dry green bricks are next closed - laid on edge upon this fuel bed. The height of the clamp is generally made up of approximately 20 to 30 layers of bricks. A thin layer of fuel is inter spread after every second layer of bricks, if the bricks don’t contain fuel in the body. Its sides are sloped for stability. Three or four holes at the base of one of the clamp walls are provided in order to allow the initial ignition of the fuel bed.

Two courses of already fired bricks are next laid on top of the green bricks for insulation purposes. Once a desired length of the clamp has been built up, the fuel bed may be ignited with wood stuffed into the fire holes of the clamp. The latter are bricked up with loosely placed burnt bricks once the flue bed is alight. As the fire advances, more green bricks are built into clamp. During burning, the heat rises through the bricks above and smoke leaves from the top of the clamp. The rate of burning is not controlled and depends on wind strength and direction. Once the fire has passed through a particular point, the bricks start to cool. They may be unloaded and sold. Fuel consumption in clamps is very high and at the same time the firing of bricks is not uniform. Down Draught Kiln These are used not only for firing facing bricks but also roofing tiles, glazed tiles and refractory goods. These kilns may be either circular or rectangular with fire holes in the circular walls or in the two sidewalls. In these kilns the combustion gases from fire hole rise from behind the bag walls into the crown of the kiln and then descend through setting of bricks/ tiles to the openings in the kiln floor through which they pass into flues and then to the chimney. The size of the kilns varies considerably, capacities ranging from 10,000 to 100,000 bricks. Fuel consumption depends upon largely upon the conditions of the kiln, the manner of setting the bricks and the control of firing process. The loss of heat varies from one type of kiln to another. These kilns are comparatively much more efficient than the clamps. Continuous Kilns Continuous kilns are those in which firing is done continuously, green bricks being put into one part of the kiln and fired bricks withdrawn from the another end. Fuel is fed regularly at a more or less constant rate. Continuous kilns utilize heat from cooling bricks to preheat green bricks and combustion air. Consequently continuous kilns are economical from fuel point of view. The continuous group of kiln includes Bulls Trench, Fixed Chimney, High Draught, Hoffman and Tunnel Kilns. Bulls Trench Kiln (BTK) The kiln consists of two parallel trenches connected at the end in semi-circles to form an elliptical shape. The kiln can be round also. Each trench is generally about 8 m wide 2.25 m deep and is sunk below the ground level to half of its depth. The effective burning length is about 15 m. and such a kiln has an output of 500,000 to 600,000 bricks per circuit, which takes about 25 to 30 days to complete burning. Various operations in BTK are depicted as follows: Bituminous slack coal is the usual fuel used in this type of kiln. In this kiln, bricks are arranged in columns leaving 10 cm space between the columns to provide passage for circulation of hot gases and cooling air. A row of 25 columns constitutes a blade and a space of one brick length is left between successive blades to provide space of for the combustion of fuel. This space is spanned by bricks at certain heights to provide stepwise platforms which help in preventing the whole of the fuel charged through a feedhole from dropping on the kiln floor and forming a large heap.

BRICK KILNS

The feedholes are covered by mild steel sheet caps. Draught is provided by a pair of lightweight sheet iron chimneys each about 10 to 12 m high. The chimneys are positioned over open feedholes on the top of the brick setting and are shifted periodically as the fire travels forward. At a certain distance behind the chimneys, cross dampers are fixed across the setting to seal the air passage and to separate the firing and the loading sections. While starting the fire, a temporary cross wall, with furnace at the foot, is constructed at a distance of 25 cm from the row of bricks. Initial firing is started by burning wood in the furnaces. Firing at the furnaces is continued till the first row of bricks is brought up to red heat and there is good bottom heat in the furnaces beyond the first row. Top feeding of fuel is then started. 0.5 to 1.0 kg of coal being charged per feedhole every 15-20 minutes, and the charge is gradually raised when sufficient temperature at the bottom is attained. There are no adjustable dampers to regulate the draught. The distance maintained between the firing zone and the chimney is of importance. In the initial sages a distance of 7 m is maintained. When the kiln is brought up to full firing order and an adequate draught is established, the chimneys are shifted further along the kiln to maintain a distance of 15 to 20 m between the chimneys and the fire. Firing is started in the straight portion of the trench and when the fire has traveled round the semi-circular end, drawing of bricks from the cool end is commenced. Setting, firing and unloading of bricks are then carried out simultaneously. A variation of the bulls kilns is, whether the chimneys move on the inner and the outer walls of the kiln. A fuel opening is made at the bottom of the wall and the flue hole runs through the wall up to top. The chimneys are placed at the flue openings at the top of the walls and are moved from one hole to the other on rails. All the operations of the kiln are exactly like bulls kiln. Fixed Chimney Kiln Fixed chimney kiln is combination of Bulls and Hoffman kilns. The operative practices of the kiln are similar to Bulls kiln, but the chimney and draught control is on the pattern of Hoffman kiln. The moving steel chimneys have been replaced by a fixed tall masonry chimney generally located at the center of the kiln. The chimney in turn is connected to the trench through a system of flues, which open in the inner wall. A cavity is left over the flue passing wide enough to allow a man to reach the flue opening leading to the trench and open or close it as required. The height of the masonry chimney is between 20 and 35 m depending upon the capacity of the kiln. Generally they are known as high capacity kilns holding 8 to 10 lacs bricks per circuit. All the operations of the kiln including loading, firing and unloading remain unchanged from the Bulls kiln.

Hoffman Kiln Hoffman kiln is generally used for firing roofing tiles. The kiln was developed in Germany in 1858. The early kilns of these type too the form of great circular ring-chamber with massive walls with a chimney at the center to which 12 underground radial flues converged from the inside wall of the chamber. The chamber was barrel arched – like a railway tunnel – and in the chamber. The chamber was arched – like a railway tunnel and in the arch were small feedholes through which the coal could be fed into the setting. Twelve wickets were arranged for setting and drawing the bricks, in the outer wall of the chamber alternating with the flues. The annular chamber was thus divided in effect into 12 compartments defined by the wickets and flues leading from them. Once the kiln was lit, it was not allowed to cool out and the sequence of operations is continuous and when the kiln was in full operation two wickets would be probably be open and the other ten brick up. Latter to give increased length, the kiln was changed to an elliptical form with main flue in the center wall connected direct to the chimney at its center. Also, an extra flue was added so that hot air could be transferred from the cooling zone of the kiln to chambers containing freshly set bricks to dry them CBRI High Draught Kiln High draught kiln is basically an archless, top feed, coal fired continuous kiln in which the fire follows a zigzag path. The main flue is located running parallel to the two sidewalls and the two flues join together at the head of the kiln. The main flue is connected to the galleries through 16 chamber flues opening into the outer walls of the kiln. A cast iron cap damper is placed on each flue opening, which can be lowered or raised from the top of the wall through a nut and collar arrangement. The main flue is connected to a short masonry chimney to exhaust the flue gases at a convenient height. Two additional plate dampers are provided in the main flue just before the fan to secure further control on the draught. For loading and unloading bricks 12 wickets of 1.5 m wide are provided in the outer walls of the kiln. The kiln is covered by a shed. The setting is space is divided into 32 chambers by constructing temporary partition walls with unfired bricks. Each partition walls runs along the whole cross section of the gallery except at one end where space is left for communication between adjacent chambers. Bricks in these walls are thoroughly burnt and are removed at the time of loading the bricks. The pattern of brick setting adopted in the kiln is more or less similar to Hoffman kiln but the firing platforms for burning of coal at different levels of the kiln are taken from the Bulls kiln. Spaces are left between the settings to permit coal being fed from top. The top of the setting is sealed with compact layer of ash, leaving out feed holds for charging coal. The feedholes are fitted with portable cast iron feed pots, which are closed with cast iron lids. Method of initiation of fire in the kiln is similar to the Bulls kiln. Damper nearest to the fire is opened and a small draught is maintained by partially lowering the damper plate in the main flue. When the bricks in the first blade are red hot, the top feeding of coal is started. Both the top and bottom firing is continued till fire reaches the end of the second chamber. As the fire advances, next chamber is opened and the previous one closed. To achieve optimum efficiency of the kiln, a firing rate of two chambers a day is maintained.

1.4 Energy balance in brick kilns Bulls kiln operating on movable chimneys, due to its inherent design parameters and operating practices show poor thermal performance and require more energy input. On an average requirement of thermal energy input in fixed chimney and high draught kiln is less by 15% and 25% respectively as compared to bulls kiln. The energy balance sheet indicates that heavy sources of heat losses in kilns are (i) sensible heat in waste flue gas/ excess air, (ii) heat losses the kiln structure through radiation and convection, (iii) potential heat loss due to improper combustion of coal leading to the formation of carbon monoxide. Sensible heat losses through waste flue gases/ excess air depend upon its quantity and temperature. There losses are maximum in bulls kiln with moving chimneys are waste flue gas temperature in this type of kiln is higher i.e. up to 2500C as compared to fixed chimneys high draught kiln. Working draught in movable chimney kiln is comparatively low (3 to 4 mm WG) whereas in fixed chimney kiln it is 6-8 mm WG. Low draught affects the combustion of fuel and reduces rate of fire travel. These parameters ultimately increase potential heat loss due to formation of CO. Heat losses through radiation/ convection from the kiln structure are enhanced because of low rate of fire travel.

The bricks at the top of the kiln are closely set and layer of ash 10-15 cm thick is spread to seal it to the atmosphere and also for the thermal insulation. The ash does not provide adequate thermal insulation hence maximum thermal energy (about 50% of the input) is thus wasted through radiation and convection from the kiln top and walls. 1.5 Sources of Pollution in Brick Kiln Activity Air pollution Stack emissions though are not excessive but significant. Use of thermally low efficient kilns and poor grade coal result in particulate and gaseous emissions. Brick kiln emissions consists of mainly coal fines and dust particles. The fugitive dust emissions are mostly siliceous except for coal crushers where there are coal fines. Crushing of coal, if any through jaw crushers also releases fine coal powder.

Coal ash is the main solid waste generated in brick kilns. Its quantity depends upon the amount of coal/ other fuel used and their ash content. The amount of ash generated is about 1 – 1.5 tonnes per day which goes on accumulating on or around the brick kilns. In addition, over burnt and broken bricks also constitute a substantial amount of waste and are piled up near the stockyard.

Water pollution Not much water is used in the manufacture of bricks except for preparation of soil for moulding into bricks. No excess water is used which could be released after moulding of bricks. Water in green bricks evaporated mostly during drying and remaining water is lost during brick burning. No wastewater is released during moulding or any other operations during brick manufacture. Noise pollution Manual production of bricks as well as firing is not accompanied by any appreciable noise generation. It is only in the semi-mechanized production of bricks that substantial noise is generated.

CHAPTER 5 Environmental Aspects and Guidance
5.0 Environmental Aspects
The typical environmental aspects of the brick kilns activity are given in the following table Activity Mining/ quarrying of clay Transportation Brick kilns Process sources Manual excavation Fugitive emission sources Top soil removal from fixed soil bed Loading and hauling Transportation of quarried Haul roads clay/ soil Crushing of coal Size reduction of coal to make it compatible to the design feed & draught of the kiln Screening of coal Filtration of crushed coal to attain the slack coal for kiln feed and rejects to re-crushing Slack coal feeding Handling & feeding of slack coal to fuel the burning of green bricks. Burning of green bricks Fugitive emissions getting air borne by wind currents across the brick kilns during burning of green bricks Flue gases Resultant flue gases generation from partial/ complete combustion of coal and decomposition of organic matter in the process of brick formation Manual separation Segregation of over/ under burnt bricks De-dusting Removal of ash from brick and top layer of ash from kiln Handling Loading of bricks Transportation Transporting of fly ash from Thermal Power Plant. Hauling Wind blow over the loosely packed and un covered trucks carrying fly ash from power plants to brick kiln site. Stocking Fugitive emissions from stockpiles of fly ash. Handling Light particles of fly ash getting air borne during handling and mix preparation of green bricks.

5.1 Pollution Prevention and Control Options Discharge Through Stack The height of steel movable chimneys varies from 12 to 15 m which discharges the flue gases at a lower level as compared to fixed chimney. The height of the steel chimney is limited and cannot be increased because of their movement during the operation of the kiln. CPCB recommended that the use of moving chimney Bulls kiln may be stopped and they are to be phased out gradually (COINDS/16/1995-96, CPCB). The MoEF has notified minimum stack height for different category of units vide G.S.R 543(E) dated 22nd July 2009 (Annexure 8) and the same shall be provided. Monitoring requirements in the stack shall be proved to monitor the particulate matter norm. Gravitational Settling Chamber Amount of dust to be handled, nature of collected material such as its particle size and handiness and efficiency of air cleaning equipment required determine the choice of air cleaning apparatus. The amount of energy required increases with decreasing particle size of dust. Gravitational method of collecting dust is recommended for collecting bigger dust particles more than 10 µ. About 70% of this dust contains particles of size bigger than 10 µ. Hence gravitational settling chamber may be efficiently used in brick kilns particularly in fixed chimney and high draught kilns for collecting dust particles. In settling chambers, dust is caught by settlement, if the time of passage of dusty air through the chamber is long enough to allow the dust to settle from the top to bottom of chamber. The air velocity inside the chamber should be kept as low as possible since the settling rate of dust particles decreases with increasing turbulence of air/ flue gases. It has been reported that a velocity of about 0.30 to 0.50 m/s are generally used. The design of entrance and discharge openings must be such as to ensure even airflow throughout the chamber. Settling chambers though have low efficiency but they have a distinct advantage in terms of low cost, low-pressure loss, simple fabrication and operation and dry/dust collection of particular matter.

Charging of coal
Considering the fact that draught available in these kilns is feeble, large sized coal takes longer time to burn due to slow rate of diffusion of oxygen into the coal masses. Ideally, coal fed to the kiln should be of such a grain size that most of it should burn out completely during its passage from top to the floor of the kiln. It is recommended that the lump coal may be reduced in size to 10 mm in a jaw crusher prior to feeding into kiln. The interval between the feeds has been observed to be 20 to 30 minutes, which stretches to even 45 minutes during severe weather conditions. To overcome the temperature in the kiln being going down during these long intervals, the kiln is very heavily feeded. This results into black emissions from the stack for a long period. The feed interval of the coal into the kiln should be between 15-20 minutes.
