NDO/VNA - Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has signed a decision approving a development programme for unbaked construction materials in Vietnam to 2030.

The programme aims to promote the production and use of unbaked building materials to replace fired clay bricks, effectively use agricultural land resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and environmental pollution, and make use of waste from industries.

Under the programme, attention will be paid to stepping up the production and use of unbaked building materials to replace about 35-40 percent of the total baked clay bricks by 2025, and 40-45 percent by 2030; ensuring the regulated rate of using unburned construction materials in construction works.

It also aims to reduce CO2 emissions by over 2.5 million tonnes per year by 2025 and by over 3 million tonnes per year by 2030.

Accordingly, attention will be paid to applying modern production technologies in production, and producing large-sized unbaked building materials products and light products based on the availability of raw material supplies and market demands.

The programme will also promote quality control of unburnt building material products to meet standards and regulations, and the inspection of the implementation of relevant regulations and legal documents in order to foster the production and use of unburnt building materials.
