A Comparative Review on: Effect of Natural Fibres Inclusion in Fly Ash Bricks

Sanjay Salla, Jayeshkumar Pitroda


In India, large quantities of fly ash being generated, as most of our energy demand is met through coal based thermal power station. The fly ash generation is expected to grow further as coal would continue to remain major source of energy at least for next 25 years. The fly ash which is a resource material, if not manage well, may pose environmental challenges. At the same time world-wide agricultural footprint is fast growing, with vast agricultural land cultivation and active expansion of the agrobased industries. The resulting large quantities of agricultural wastes, unfortunately, are not always well managed or utilized. These wastes can be recycled, such as by retrieving fibres from disposed leaves and fruits bunches, and then incorporate in brick making. The natural fibres were sourced from coconut fibre, human hair fibre, pineapple fibre, oil pam fibre added within the range. This review describes change in the physical properties such as weight, density etc. and mechanical properties like compressive strength of fly ash bricks and clay bricks made by adding different natural fibres.
