    In the existing brick-making technique, clay is melted at more than 2,000 degrees fahrenheit for more than a day, while creating 13 billion pounds of carbon dioxide per year! The cement industry is said to be the second largest emitter of pollutants after utilities!

    CEO Michael Kane explains that Calstar Products produces bricks that reduce the embedded energy by 85 percent compared to existing brick-making techniques. Their process replaces the clay and concrete used in bricks with fly ash, so that 40 percent of the product is recycled material!
