About

Habla Zig-Zag Kilns International has introduced innovative, clean firing technology and energy efficiency measures for the clay brick sector that have led to improved air quality and significant emission reductions of black carbon. The project is a successful example of a clean technology transfer project from a developed country to a developing country, and collaboration between the public sector, private sector, NGO, local community and donors. The HZZK model can be replicated throughout the developing world to curb brick sector-related black carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.
