Reinforcement of Environment Protection Laws Prompt Construction Companies to Adopt AAC
AAC has gained an increasing level of popularity in the global market owing to the heightened focus on environment-friendly construction materials. Production of AAC is energy-efficient and the material is chemically inert, nontoxic, and weighs only about one-fourth the weight of conventional concrete. Owing to these factors, AAC has become one of the primary choices of the construction industry for developing green building projects. The low weight of AAC structures leads to a significant reduction on the materials' cost of transportation. Moreover, AAC makes excellent use of fly ash (approximately 60% by weight of a typical AAC product), many million tons of which are produced every year by the thermal power generation industry.
Owing to these factors, AAC blocks are increasingly replacing traditional red bricks across the globe. Compared to the process of manufacturing of red bricks, which is highly taxing to the environment as it consumes fertile land and emits greenhouse gases, AAC has a significantly low level of negative impact on the environment. The factor is expected to remain one of the key growth drivers of the global AAC market in the next few years. With environment protection amendments and rules becoming stricter with every passing day, AAC will garner a central position in the global market in the near future.
