Ecobuild

Lilongwe, Malawi | Building Materials | Fledge7
Ecobuild aims to be the first carbon neutral manufacturer of red brick in Malawi. Today Ecobuild has the only Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln in the country, which uses 10% of the energy of the traditional, artisanal brick manufacturing methods, and once at scale the plan is to switch from coal to charred agricultural waste to eliminate the last 10% of emissions. Bootstrapped by a father/son team, the first commercial bricks were produced in early 2016 and the company is seeking to scale up to 5 million bricks per year.
Ecobuild is a fledgling from Fledge, the conscious company accelerator
