The factory was set up at Shibganj Parpugi village in Sadar Upazila by an organization called ‘Razzak Group’.  Making bricks in this factory does not require burning; Bricks are prepared by applying pressure with the help of a machine. Bricks were being produced in a computer-controlled ‘Vibro cavity’ machine.

Habibul Islam, chairman of Razzak Group, said, “There is no alternative to eco-friendly bricks to save the environment. I started this factory with this in mind. ‘Speaking to the officials and employees of the company, it is learned that Habibul Islam occasionally travels to different countries for business.

He started brick production on November 19 last year. The factory uses 40% fly ash, 40% sand, 15% cement, and 5% crushed stone to make bricks, as per prothomalo.com.
