Austral Bricks and Daniel Robertson are the first brick brands in Australia to produce certified carbon-neutral bricks. This Australian first has been assessed, audited and approved against the Australian Government’s National Carbon Offset Standard.
The certification is largely achieved through the use of sawdust to fire the kilns. Sawdust is a low-emissions biomass that is a waste product sourced from the local timber industry. Emissions from the manufacture of carbon-neutral bricks are 96% lower than traditional fossil-fuel kilns. Bricks can also help regulate temperatures within a home. australbricks.com.au
