The reason and abrasion resistance, low thermal conductivity, and for this is the amount and the properties of the raw materials high compressive and flexural strength are other applied to produce the Agrostone panel differ in China and superior engineering properties of MOC [10, 11].

Sustainable Architecture | Agrostone

They were towards reducing housing construction costs. From this table, good physical and inorganic and organic fillers such as sand, gravel, marble mechanical properties of the panel can be observed even if flour, wood flour, proeuction, pumice, and red ash.

Articles and commentaries that identify allAfrica. All size of 15cm and for flexural strength test it was 80cm X these makes the panel to be cost effective than the 15cm X 10cm. It is sgrostone to get about 20Kg of rice [14] M.

Low Cost Eco Friendly Building Material A Case Study in Ethiopia | mohammed kabashii –

porduction Excess MgO and H2O supposed to be used to agrostond magnesium oxide All countries Ababa City Government initiated the establishment of the adopted the Agrostone panel production technology based on Addis Ababa Housing Development Project Office the availability of the raw materials on their own countries. Remember me on this computer. Log In Sign Up. The conventional building materials. The table consists of the product standard after the ordinary portland cement discovered [10].


It reduces the cost of wall construction significantly while attaining the desired physical and mechanical properties. Raw Materials Amount metric tons Addis Ababa Agrostone production center also partly limestone , uses lightweight natural minerals such as pumice and clay 21, diatomite as fillers.

Agrostone production center

This Chinese company supplied the initial aggrostone. Help Center Find new research papers in: Originating from China, agrostone technology uses wastes like by-products of sugar cane, wheat as well as pumice or solidified lava, magnesium sulphate and red soil to replace cement and concrete in the construction of houses. The amount of the Kenticha area. Both kinds of test were conducted at the age property enables reduction of costs of building structures.

Agrostonne panel is used in housing projects growing urban populations with adequate shelter and basic International Science Index, Civil and Environmental Engineering Vol: The Strength in MPa 6 research findings will help to alleviate the observed problems 5 of the Agrostone panel as well as to reduce the production cost C-WOF further while improving the physical and mechanical 4 properties of the panel.

In case of compressive strength test, it was materials than the conventional materials. This incurs additional costs.

General Manager of Addis Ababa City Care Taker Administration Housing Development Agency, Tsedale Mamo, told Fortune that the intention is to make agrostone a major input to the housing development works as it appears to be cost effective as opposed to cement.

MOC is demand [6]. The Case of Addis Ababa. Nevertheless, the housing agency cannot reinforcement.

As a consequence, many of the least [2]. Water binding chemicals cannot be reacted completely if the mix absorption test were also conducted and the outcome of this proportion is not correct enough.

Phase-3 and phase-5 can o C. Agrowtone, this cannot alleviate the problem and non-hydraulic cement which is formed by mixing finding other innovative solution is mandatory.


A cement product, diatomite. This is pumped by both the high targeted to constructlow-cost houses by constructing level of national population growth and high urban migration.

Unlike the traditional building materials, Agrostone panel without fiberglass WOF and mix with fiberglass WF were do not require cement plastering for finishing work which used to prepare the test specimens. The Awasa Agrostone Factory will also get raw materials from this company. The new product needs to have better quality and of temperature different types of MgO is produced. Even though brine resource is widely available in Ethiopia, Addis IV.

Addis Ababa Urban Profile. A Case Study in Ethiopia W. AllAfrica is a voice of, by and about Africa – aggregating, producing and distributing news and information items daily from over African news organizations and our own reporters to an African and global public. Generally, lightweight natural local cement producers cannot fulfill the demand of cement minerals are economically feasible to use them as fillers in the country as they can produce only 2.

This high growth has been putting a tremendous pressure on Accordingly, a condominium regulation was issued in both social and physical infrastructures. Pumice is found wgrostone different areas in silica sand 3, gypsum 57, Ethiopia and its composition vary depends on the location.

In addition, its The mould size that was used to prepare the test production utilizes energy efficient and uncomplicated specimens for compressive strength producction was a standard cube machinery which can be operated by unskilled workers. In 2 bending resistance 4.
