What i s FaL-G:
FaL-G is the patented (Patent No. 198639) technology
for the production of fly ash Bricks and blocks.
Fly ash (the residue of coal combustion in boilers of
thermal plants and other process industries) is blended
with lime/cement and gypsum to get FaL-G as the
cementitious binder. Sand or stone dust is added as filler.
As of now, over 12,000 micro plants are working with an
aggregate out put of over 36 billion bricks (or equal
volume of blocks) and turnover of approx.
Rs. 108 billions (USD 2.40 bn).
FaL-G:CDM Project
FaL-G technology avoids thermal energy so
much so use of fossil fuels, abating air pollution
and particularly GHG emissions, thus
qualifying for CDM.
By using industrial byproducts, sub-soil and air
pollutions are abated.
By conserving natural minerals such as clay,
which constitutes the top soil of lands used
for agriculture, fertility of lands is protected
paving way for sustainable food production.
FaL-G Technology and Features
FaL-G Technology and Features
In view of this macro service to mankind, the
technology is not restricted though covered by patent
No. 198639/1996, facilitating proliferation in leaps and
Bounds throughout India.
How does FaL-G Technology
qualify for CDM?
Each one million FaL-G bricks help to:
Conserve 3,500 tons of fertile top soil.
Consume 2,700 tons of various industrial byproducts.
Conserve 200 tons of coal or equivalent fuel.
Abate about 356 tons (252 tons after leakages) of
Carbon dioxide.
FaL-G:CDM Project
Under Bundling program, Eco Carbon Pvt. Ltd., has signed
with brick manufacturers (sub-project entities) whose
credits are offered to The World Bank, the Trustee of
Community Development Carbon Fund (CDCF); 600,000
Contract ERs and 200,000 ERs under Call Option.
Typical Clay Brick Activity-Baseline
Base Line: Clay Brick Activity
Clay brick production is one of the energy-intensive
activity due to thermal energy required for sintering
operations. On an average, one million clay bricks
consume over 200 tons of coal, or equivalent fuel, belching
unprocessed flue gases as well as over 380 tons of CO2.
By replacing the application of clay bricks in the
construction segment, both in housing and infrastructure,
FaL-G bricks/blocks serve the market with more vividity.

This project has selected the Workers in FaL-G
brick industry as the Community for extending
service. The benefits are as follows:
Providing self-protection gadgets such as gumboots,
nose masks and gloves to the workers.
Water purifying systems at each FaL-G plant for
serving drinking water to the workers.
Providing health insurance for Rs. 10,000 and
life insurance for Rs. 100,000 to workers every year.

Co-Benefits of FaL-G:CDM Project
Health check up once in a year.
AIDS-awareness program for first two years, by
which workers are exposed to causes of Aids and
taught with the preventive and curative measures.
Co-Benefits of FaL-G:CDM Project
To inculcate the habit of savings to the workers by
contributing Rs. 500 per each worker per year to
their individual savings account;
After some progress of
the program, problems
cropped up for opening
accounts to workers for
want of resident-proof.
Now this amount is
routed to distribute
linen to workers on
annual basis.
Co-Benefits of FaL-G:CDM Project
SPEs face negative incentive for complacence in compliance so
much so positive incentive for doing well in EMCB compliance
by virtue of cash awards and citation. Rs. 100,000 is earmarked
every year for this purpose.
The first EMCB Award of Rs. 50,000 went to Ms Vijaya Sri (AP/Vis/II-10) in 2009-10
For doing internal road in Khadanza style and putting plantation on both sides.

Part of the CB fund is used for enhancing the scope of
community services. For example, a Reverse-Osmosis water
purification system (50 LPH) at a cost of Rs. 42,000 is provided
to the Girls Hostel of a residential school in Visakhapatnam,
alleviating the hardships in getting potable water to over 180 girl
students.

CONCLUSIONS
In todays context, industry causes, by and large,
un-sustainability to Community and Ecology.
In contrast to the traditional clay brick industry,
FaL-G is the unique and Holistic E4Technology
in serving Ecology, Environment, Economy and
Empowerment.
Those who prove us in contrary by demonstrating
alternate technology get Rs One million award.
