Resumen

MACHADO L, Iván et al. lmproving energy efficiency on production of clay ceramic bricks using lignocellulosic-densified-material based biofuel. Rev. ing. constr. [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.2, pp.208-223. ISSN 0718-5073.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50732011000200005.

This work presents some experiences in producing building materials, such as clay bricks, from an alternative energy source that replaces wood or firewood by waste lignocellulosic material submited to the process of densification under low pressure. The densification process at low pressure involves the use of a binder; this paper proposes the use of clay material as binder. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effect in the consumption of biofuel during the production of handmade bricks, partially replacing wood by densified biomass. Some properties of the biofuel are identified to increase the bricks-to-fuel consumption ratio from 1.1 to 1.4. This improves the efficiency of the production process, reduces specific consumption regarding the use of traditional fuels with its consequent environmental improvement of the process.

Palabras clave : Eco-materials; bricks; biomass; densification.
