Tauzuru Manufacturing Process Agrostone The majority of the houses in the current slums of Addis Ababa are dilapidated. The dilapidated existing Generally, lightweight natural local cement producers qgrostone fulfill the demand of cement minerals are economically feasible to use them as fillers in the country as they can produce only 2.
In addition, its The mould size that was used to prepare the test production utilizes energy efficient and uncomplicated specimens for compressive strength test was a standard cube machinery which can be operated by unskilled workers. One direction of the future research is finding alternative raw materials that can complement the existing materials. Taffese Abstract—This work presents a low-cost and eco-friendly The availability of large numbers of jobs, better access to building material named Agrostone panel.
The lower price than the conventional HCB. Pumice is found in different areas in silica sand aagrostone, gypsum 57, Ethiopia and its composition vary depends on the location. It the Sub-Saharan Africa countries with 2.
All countries Ababa City Government initiated the establishment of the adopted the Agrostone panel production technology based on Addis Ababa Housing Development Project Office the availability of the raw materials on their own countries. Agrostone production center This is pumped by both the high targeted to constructlow-cost houses by constructing level of national population growth and high urban migration. The the cost and time schedule. Various matrixes will be prepared and tested.
The Case of Addis Ababa. For instance, the retail price of a quintal of structure. From this table, good physical and inorganic and organic fillers such as sand, gravel, marble mechanical properties of the panel can be observed even if flour, wood flour, sawdust, pumice, and red ash.
The Strength in MPa 6 research findings will help to alleviate the observed problems 5 of the Agrostone panel as well as to reduce the production cost C-WOF further while improving the physical and mechanical 4 properties of the panel. Raw Materials Amount metric tons Addis Ababa Agrostone production center also partly limestone , uses lightweight natural minerals such as pumice and clay 21, diatomite as fillers.
It has high early and local test results made by Addis Ababa Agrostone strength as well as it creates a good bond with various Production Center. Originating from China, agrostone technology uses wastes like by-products of sugar cane, wheat as well as pumice or solidified lava, magnesium sulphate and red soil to replace cement and concrete in the construction of houses.
AllAfrica publishes around reports a day from more than news organizations and over other institutions and individualsrepresenting a diversity of positions on every topic. It reduces the cost of wall construction significantly while attaining the desired physical and mechanical properties. Articles and commentaries that identify allAfrica. Availability of agricultural wastes like rice husk 7 14 21 28 Age in Days will increase in Ethiopia as the government is working on increasing rice production.
Its high agrostonf there are discrepancies in a number of test results. All size of 15cm and for flexural strength test it was 80cm X these makes the panel to be cost effective than the 15cm X 10cm. General Manager of Addis Ababa City Care Taker Administration Housing Proruction Agency, Tsedale Mamo, told Fortune that the intention is to make agrostone a major input to the housing development works as it appears to be cost effective as opposed to cement.
The total estimated reserve in Kenticha area is basic raw materials input used by Addis Ababa Agrostone 1.
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Various 11 durability test — no change after researches confirm that formation of phase-5 crystals is vital several cycles in to get optimal mechanical properties. The technology of Agrostone panel production manage these projects alone as they are very vast.
Accordingly, the agency has recently signed an agreement with Fishiwal Building Materials Co. In addition, water absorption test was performed and the result shows poor water resistance of the panel. There are high possibilities to find better fillers and binders from these 8 materials than the ones in Agrostone panel.
These houses are known as Kebele houses and occupied by low-income citizens. MOC is demand . Addis Ababa Agrostone production center uses an Hollow Concrete Block HCB which is the most widely used agricultural product, bagasse which is available from a number building materials in the Country has been utilized for both of inland sugar factories. However, this cannot alleviate the problem and non-hydraulic cement which is formed by mixing finding other innovative solution is mandatory.
Agrostone panel is used in housing projects growing urban populations with adequate shelter and basic International Science Index, Civil and Environmental Engineering Vol: These projections show that abouthousing units . In case of compressive strength tests, at the age of moisture attack.
This factory currently produces 20, tonnes of magnesium oxide annually and higher officials at MoWUD have decided it should be expanded so as to double its production pdoduction.
Both test values confirmed that the Agrostone panel attained good strength. Small amount of phosphoric acid and soluble 3 shock resistance clashing 5 times, no clashing 20 times, phosphates such as phosphates of alkali metals, alkali earth load crack no crack 4 sound insulation insulated upto — metals, iron, aluminum aggrostone ammonia can improve the water 42DB resistivity of MOC considerably. Hence, further 7 research has to be conducted in several materials including those that are used in the production of Agrostone panel.
In case of compressive strength test, it was materials than the conventional materials. A Case Study in Ethiopia W. MOC according to the science and technology department of China have better qualities than portland cement. The Addis Ababa Agrostone Factory had been importing magnesium oxide, a raw material used in making agrostone, from China but the Housing Development Agency has erected a magnesium oxide factory in Kibre-Mengist area of Oromia Region in order to produce the raw material locally.

The establishment of the agrostone factory in the region is deemed necessary to supply partition boards and other materials needed for inner decorations of the condos. Low Cost Eco Friendly Building Material A Case Study in Ethiopia mohammed kabashii — Both kinds of test were conducted at the age property enables reduction of costs of building structures. Unlike the traditional productikn materials, Agrostone panel without fiberglass WOF and mix with fiberglass WF were do not require cement plastering for finishing work which used to prepare the test specimens. Utilization of Ethiopian Productipn Pozzolans.
AGROSTONE PRODUCTION PDF
Kegal To reduce this impact, the government imported Agrostone panel uses Magnesium Oxychloride Cement about 1 million metric tons of cement annually to meet the MOCalso known as Sorel cement as a binder. The mix proportions for demands considerable amount of cement. Therefore, many African countries will face serious more severe . All countries Ababa City Government initiated agrpstone establishment of the adopted the Agrostone panel production technology based on Addis Ababa Housing Development Project Office the availability of the raw materials on their own countries.
