A developing a country like Malaysia needs a lot of different sizes of granite stones to cater to the different needs of the construction industry. What happens to the end waste of this granite stones manufacturing process; QUARRY DUST?
This light mass granite quarry dust particles can go easily with wind & rain. It can travel kilometers away & settle somewhere on the roof, leaves, cars, hairs, clothes & etc. Do you know that it can be trapped in the drains & manholes faraway too?
Department of Environment may have guidelines for all the quarry operators to follow, with all the mitigating measures like installing water sprinklers within the quarry to prevent dust from engulfing the surrounding areas. But the truth fact is, once all these light mass quarry dust was trapped down by water sprinklers & stored away in a stock pile under open air, these light mass Quarry Dust dried up hence it is free to travel in all directions with difference speed subjected to the availability of the natural wind.
These problems are not new for the past 20 years or more. An unsolved problem still remains a problem despite time. Time is definitely not a solution to these air pollution problems.
Therefore, a real solution is needed to tackle this quarry dust disaster.
The art in transforming granite quarry dust particles to become an energy efficient building product, EXXOMAS BIOBRICK is our main purpose!
This is an innovation, far more than new ideas. It includes the process of successfully introducing them to the building industry. Innovation of turning granite quarry dust into useful, practical & commercial product; EXXOMAS BRICK.
We are proud to tell the world, that this is a Malaysia Patented Brick, our technologies are under the protection of the Intellectual Property Corporation of Malaysia (MYIPO) for a period of 20 years under the Law of Malaysia.
Besides the fact that EXXOMAS BIOBRICK made up of 94% pre-consumer recycle content material (granite dust particles), through our research, EXXOMAS BIOBRICK is found to be 3 times cooler than clay brick & 7 times cooler than concrete & cement sand brick. This extraordinary & excellent thermal conductivity performance made EXXOMAS BIOBRICK surpass the conventional product like cement sand brick & clay brick. Based on the Building Sector Energy Efficiency Project (BSEEP) research on Energy Efficiency Study on various products, “How much energy will be saved per year and what is the simple payback?” This is the subject of topic today.
Here is a direct comparison to a concrete wall for a 15,000 m2 building:
Simple Payback will never happened for Cement Sand Brick. Simple Payback for Clay Brick is 21 years. Simple Payback for Aerated Concrete Product is 17 years. Simple Payback for EXXOMAS BIOBRICK is only 6 years.CK Tang, BSEEP Lead Consultant
Thanks to the great effort put in by Public Work Department of Malaysia towards Energy Efficiency Study, this software is well designed to allow all professionals or students to make simple comparison among various “Green Product”.
Nobody nowadays support Green Product blindly. Supports will be given upon National Recognize Study & Research, Public Work Department of Malaysia is making a good guide for all players in the industry to follow.
Just imagine, if the innovated EXXOMAS BIOBRICK is not going to be support by our building industry and our Government, there will be no way quarry dust woes can be tackle. The success of tackling quarry dust woes largely depends on the Public Work Department of Malaysia’s acceptance of EXXOMAS BIOBRICK.
Towards a Cleaner & Greener Malaysia is happening with more Sustainable & Passive Design Green Buildings are our decision & direction.
Our innovation happened before 2009, our National recognition happened in 2009, & our Certificate of Appreciation from Penang Green Council come in late 2014. Before we get worried about our beloved country, our surrounding environment and the Mother Earth, first we have to ask ourselves what we have done to our country, our surrounding environment and the Mother Earth. How much we care determine how far we can sustain. A sustainable model is develop by us.
