Presentation on February 6, 2020, by Alberto Navarro to the Full District Council introducing the CSEB and Rammed Earth technologies for the construction of the Girls Dormitory and other school projects creating and opportunity for creation of local community jobs and obtain resources for community projects.
A local material Made on the site itself or in the nearby area. Thus, it will save transportation, fuel, time and money.
A job creation opportunity CSEB allows unskilled and unemployed people to learn a skill, get a job and rise in the social scale.
A bio-degradable material CSEB will come back to our Mother Earth… No other building material can do that.
Limiting deforestation Firewood is not needed to produce CSEB. This will save forests.
Management of resources Each quarry should be planned for various utilizations: water harvesting pond, wastewater treatment, reservoirs.
Energy efficiency and eco friendliness The pollution emission will also be 2.4 to 7.8 times less than fired bricks.
Cost efficiency Produced locally, with a natural resource and semi skilled labour, almost without transport
An adapted material Being produced locally it is easily adapted to various needs: technical, social, cultural habits.
A transferable technology It is a simple technology requiring semi skills, easy to get. Simple villagers will be able to learn how to do it in a few weeks.
Market opportunity According to the local context (materials, labour, equipment, etc.) the final price will be cheaper than fired or cement bricks.
Reducing imports Produced locally by semi skilled people, no need to import from far away expensive materials
Flexible production scale Equipment for CSEB is available from manual to motorized tools ranging from village to semi industry scale.
Social acceptance CSEB can adapt itself to various needs, from poor income groups to well off people or government needs. Its quality, regularity and style allow a wide range of final house products.
