The Clay Life Cycle - Production Process
The manufacture of clay building products is constantly improving. The clay brick and tile industry is continually monitoring its energy usage which forms a significant part of total production costs. Much work has already been done to decrease energy consumption and consequently CO2 emissions in line with government guidelines. Firing gives our products their exceptional performance, long life and durability and is an indispensable part of the production process.
Some products are designed to be energy efficient in use and there has been a
significant increase in thermal performance qualities of products over the past few years.
Our objective is to continue this trend in order to deliver efficient products that are
manufactured with careful energy usage, controlled emissions and minimal waste.
