Earth Bricks with Halloysite Nanoclay: Research and Experimentation for the Sustainability of Materials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The paper illustrates the experimentation activities on rammed earth and nanotechnologies conducted by the authors.The experimental research was carried out with the aim of improving the performance of rammed earth bricks with clay nanotubes, creating a ‘new material’ with reduced embodied energy and low CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.Specifically, the analysed performances are related to the compressive strength that expand their area of use as a building material.
