Advantages of using Puzzolana Green Flyash Bricks in

LEED (India) Certification of buildings

 Energy and Atmosphere 
 Perquisite 2Minimum Energy Performance: Puzzolana Green Bricks directly contribute to this credit since the thermal insulation of flyash bricks is more than 200% of conventional clay bricks, thus reducing heating and cooling requirements substantially.
 Credit 1.0Optimize Energy Performance: Puzzolana Green Bricks directly contribute to this credit since the thermal insulation of flyash bricks is more than 200% of conventional clay bricks, thus reducing heating and cooling requirements substantially.

Materials and Resources 
 Credit 4.1  &
 Credit 4.2
Recycled Content: Puzzolana Green Bricks contain more than 75% post-industrial recycled content, so are considered for the purposes of these credits. 
 Credit 5.1  &
 Credit 5.2
Regional Materials: Our Flyash Bricks consist of materials recovered and extracted within 800 km of the manufacturing facility. For project sites within 800 km of Dhansa, New Delhi bricks contribute to these credits. 
 Indoor Environmental Quality
 Perquisite 1Minimum IAQ performence: Bricks contribute to this credit as mass of masonry reduces the transmission of HVAC background noise into rooms. 
 Credit 7.0Thermal Comfort – Design: Bricks contribute to this credit as the insulating value of flyash brick masonry is helpful to maintain comfortable interior temperatures. 
 Innovation in Design
 Credit 1.1Innovation in Design: Using a comprehensive design strategy to incorporate materials with reduced embodied energy and carbon footprints. Although simply using a new material may be insufficient to achieve an Innovation in Design credit, using Puzzolana green flyash bricks in combination with other innovative and low-impact materials may qualify for a credit.
 Beyond LEED 
 Conservation of precious top-soil: Puzzolana Green brick use flyash as raw material and are more environment friendly than conventional clay bricks which consume soil as raw material.
 Insect Resistance: Puzzolana Green bricks don't introduce food or habitat for termites, carpenter ants, or other pests. 
 Embodied Energy: Puzzolana Green bricks are exemplary performers in reducing the energy embodied in your projects. Because they're made with self-cementing fly ash, they don't involve fired materials like Portland cement or clay. Puzzolana Green bricks require 550-850 BTUs to produce, compared to 4800-8800 BTUs for clay bricks and 1240 BTUs for concrete bricks. 
 Carbon Footprint: Puzzolana Green bricks are exemplary performers in reducing the carbon footprint of your projects. A Puzzolana Green brick's carbon footprint is 0.15 lb, compared to 1.3 lb for clay brick and 0.75 lb for concrete brick. 
 Reduced Construction Waste: Puzzolana Green bricks and pavers, when used in designs that take advantage of their modularity, generate very little construction waste. Cut or broken units can be used as site fill, and intact units can be retained for repairs or for other projects. 
 Long Service Life: Puzzolana Green bricks lend themselves to durable designs that are easy to service or repair, enabling the very long service life demonstrated by centuries of brick construction. 
 Low-Emitting Materials: Puzzolana Green bricks, when used as a finished surface on building interiors, can reduce the use of finishes and maintenance materials that emit urea formaldehyde or other volatile organic compounds. Fly ash brick requires no paint or adhesives and can serve as a low-emitting flooring, wall, or ceiling finish for many types of spaces. 
 Passive Solar Design: The thermal mass of Puzzolana Green bricks and pavers can play a vital role in high-performing, energy saving projects designed for passive solar heating and passive cooling.
