Email from Krishnammal about LAFTI’s house-building projects
“Greetings from LAFTI. We have started to make dry-fly ash bricks …”
Fly-ash is a byproduct of coal-fired electrical generation. India’s Oil and Natural Gas Commission donated a brickmaking machine for house-building to LAFTI (RLA 2008). Unlike conventional brick-kilns, the use of fly-ash does not require wood for firing bricks.
