    ISLAMABAD: Use of Zig-Zag technology in construction and operations of kilns can minimise the effects of burning coal on environment and reduce the fuel consumption up to 30 per cent.

    This was stated by Sewa Lamsal, Ambassador of Nepal in Pakistan during the inaugural ceremony of three-day training workshop on “Construction and Understanding Operations of Zig-Zag Bricks Kilns” organised by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) in collaboration with Ministry of Climate Change, International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (NEECA).

    She asked the kiln owners in Pakistan to adopt this new technology without any fear or hesitation as it gives better quality bricks and reduces coal consumption.

    Engineer Khadim Hussain Bhatti, Secretary PEC welcomed the participants and highlighted the recent achievements of PEC at international and national level.

    He was of the view that the introduction of environment friendly and energy efficient brick kilns is an effort in the right direction.

    The traditional design of brick kilns is not only energy intensive but also put various health hazards and environmental issues, he added. With the help of modified design, up to 30 per cent reduction in fuel would save millions of dollars spent on coal import beside reduction in carbon emission up to 85 per cent thus controlling environmental degradation, he added.

    He further revealed that the production of high quality bricks could be improved up to 95 per cent which is currently less than 70 per cent.

    PEC shall facilitate in creating awareness about this technology through trainings, linking indigenous Research and Development organisations and pursuing policy reforms in the sector to encourage and support the kiln owners as well as the society.
