Make your own clay bricks with Brussels earth

Discover sustainable innovation with BC Materials at the immersive workshop on raw earth construction.

Every year, Belgium extracts around 37 million tonnes of earth from construction sites, 70% of which is thrown away as waste. BC Materials transforms clean earth into eco-friendly building materials such as plasters, clay bricks and clay for walls and floors. These circular, CO2-neutral products contribute to a healthy indoor climate and minimise the use of grey energy.

Join the workshop to discover the circular earth process, from extraction to the manufacture of recycled bricks. Make your own clay bricks from Brussels earth, build a small wall, and take it apart to recycle the materials. A workshop that combines practice, environmental awareness and innovation, illustrating how construction can be carbon-neutral.
