Manufacturing, curing, and palletizing of a prefabricated earth block of large dimensions.
The final aim of the research is to develop a prefabricated earth block of large dimensions in order to provide a viable alternative to the construction of traditional rammed earth walls, improving performance and quality control.
The study focuses on the manufacturing, curing, and palletizing of a prefabricated earth block measuring 100 x 40 x 15 cm – a product that is natural and sustainable and that can be 100% recycled and reused without generating waste, while minimizing CO2 emissions to the atmosphere during the manufacturing process.
