Workgroup A. BioBricks. The Fate and Effetct of Sewage Sludge-Based Bricks on Human Health and Water Resource Quality
Barna, Cristian Radu
The overall project goal is to prevent water pollution in the River Basin of the Danube’s stretch crossing Croatia, Serbia and Hungary, coming from the use of sewage sludge-based bricks in house construction, which despite representing a solution to the ever increasing problem of waste management and determining a reduction of the clay needed for construction, may pose environmental and health dangers if not properly used, due to leaching of toxic substances and heavy metals into the waters. The project aims at creating a comprehensive database on SSBB environmental and health effects; developing a guideline for SSBB manufacturers on standardised SSBB production, and increasing the awareness and knowledge of manufacturers and consumers on possible negative effects and the proper handling/use of SSBBs.
