A factory has been set up in Dinajpur to make state-of-the-art block bricks with stone powder and cement without burning the environmentally friendly and valuable soil of the land with German technology.
Barapukuria mining stone, gravel of Panchagarh, stone powder, selection sand, cement and many other materials are being used to make bricks without using fuel and soil. This will protect the fertile land and will not pollute the atmosphere. Stakeholders also say that using these bricks to build houses will reduce the cost a lot. The locals are happy as it has created employment.
A state-of-the-art brick making factory called ‘Green Berry Brix Industry Limited’ has been set up near the river and agricultural land in Lalbagh Dam area of Dinajpur Sadar.
Workers bring stones, cement, selection sand trolleys to the side of the factory and pour them into hoppers. These bricks are later made by mixing other materials in the mixing machine with a conveyor belt through a vibro multi-cavity molding machine. These eco-friendly bricks come out of the machine in rows in just a few minutes.

The factory now employs half a hundred people. If the government instructions are followed, many will come forward with such initiatives. This will protect the fertile land and the pollution of the atmosphere. It is also possible to reduce the cost by up to 40% by building a house with these bricks.
