Expressions of Interest for Setting up 3 Resource Efficient Brick (REB) Units and Preparation of Investment Plans for 25 REB Units

The Indian brick industry with an annual brick production of nearly 240-260 billion is the second largest brick producer in the world. Brick production contributes significantly to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as to topsoil erosion. There are immense possibilities of reducing energy consumption and thereby GHG emissions by manufacturing and promoting the use of clay fired Resource Efficient Bricks (REBs) including flyash based bricks/ blocks, which will have other co-benefits as well, such as soil conservation. Realizing the potential, UNDP launched a program to support setting up of 3 REB production units & preparation of investment plans for setting up 25 such REB production units (including flyash based bricks/ blocks) in the Northern States of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Western U.P. and Rajasthan with the objective to reduce energy consumption, restrict GHG emissions and save the topsoil. These plans could be used as ready-made documents for attracting potential investors.

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has engaged Punjab State Council for Science & Technology, Chandigarh (PSCST) for "Setting up of 3 Resource Efficient Brick (REB) Units and Preparation of Investment Plans for 25 REB Units".
