Compressed Stabilized Earth Block as a Sustainable Building Material

Md. Akhter Hossain Sarker, Ishtiak Mahmud


In recent years Environment pollution is the most concerned issue. Awareness growing to save the environment. In Bangladesh, burnt clay brick is the most commonly used building material. Which produce a significant amount of greenhouse gasses and also it destroys a huge amount of agricultural land every year. Concerning the issue of scientist searching for sustainable and eco-friendly building material. Compressed Stabilized Earth Block (CSEB) give the opportunity of energy efficient, eco-friendly, agriculture friendly and sustainable development. It does not produce any harmful gasses during production. In this study, river dredged soil used to produce CSEB, so it also helps to save the agricultural land. CSEB have been prepared with the different composition of cement, sand and river dredged soil. The compressive strength of different blocks is measured to find the suitable composition to produce CSEB and also to compare among them to find out the optimum composition.

Keywords: Sustainability, Agriculture friendly, environment friendly, River dredged soil.
