The ‘Gent Waste Brick for DING’, a low carbon brick made from recycled municipal waste from the city of Ghent is certified and is declared fit for use! The bricks have undergone a robust development process that includes testing against European norms. Made from 63% waste, the unfired bricks have only 1/3 the embodied carbon of a typical clay brick over a 60-year life cycle. Residents will be given the opportunity to help make a brick as part of the museum’s unique engagement programme.
