Portfolio news 2012 Encos Ltd - Carbon-negative bricks and brick slips on display at Greenbuild Expo 2012 03 May 2012

Carbon negative bricks and brick slips developed by Encos Ltd will be on display on stand G3 at Greenbuild Expo 2012. This major sustainable refurbishment and building event will take place on 9 - 10 May at Manchester Central.

Encos bricks and brick slips are made from a combination of recovered aggregates and vegetable-oil-based binders. They are manufactured using a patented method which is based on research originally carried out at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds by Dr John Forth into the use of alternative binders in construction materials. The process consumes no water, and produces no waste.

Mark Nichols, CEO of Encos Ltd said: "Our carbon negative masonry units fit in perfectly with the Greenbuild Expo sustainable refurbishment and building theme, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit, demonstrate and discuss the properties of our carbon-negative bricks and brick slips at this important sustainable construction event. Because we are close to coming to market, the timing is ideal to explain to delegates how our products can help improve the sustainability performance of new builds and in refurbishing properties."

Encos Products

Encos bricks and brick slips, which will be marketed as Encobricks and Encoslips, will be the first Encos products to come onto the market. Prototype products manufactured at the Encos pilot plant have been subjected to comprehensive testing at BRE and have met the standards for fire resistance, freeze-thaw and compressive strength.

The products, which have a very attractive appearance, have been used successfully in the construction of a number of 'test walls' including one that was previously on display at Poundbury, the urban development project built on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall.

Environmental impact

Traditional clay bricks and brick slips are not very environmentally friendly. The relatively high levels of energy needed to convert raw materials into finished products means that the equivalent of approximately 240 kg of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) is emitted during the manufacture of 1 ton of clay bricks. Because production of Encos bricks consumes 80% less energy than is used in the production of clay bricks, Encos bricks produce only 30 kg CO2e  per ton of product. In addition, the plants that produce the vegetable oils used in the Encos binder take in CO2.For every ton of Encos product produced, 70 kg of CO2 is sequestered within the binder.

Encos Ltd

Encos Ltd was founded in 2007 as a spin-out from the University of Leeds to exploit research carried out by Dr John Forth of the Department of Civil Engineering into the use of alternative binders in construction materials. The Company has developed a unique patented process for producing fully sustainable construction products. The process which consumes no water and produces no waste enables the manufacture of carbon-negative bricks and brick slips. Encos' founding and current principal investor is IP Group plc who are listed on the London Stock Exchange (see below).
