17364: Lucien: Compressed Earth Brick??

From: Jean-Patrick Lucien <patlucien@yahoo.com>

      Anyone has experienced with Compressed Earth Brick machine? Know of
      any organizations using such machine in Haiti, please let me know.

      This method relies on mechanical pressure to compress soil to a
      density which allows the bricks to be used as building units. The
      plant used for the process can either be a manual lever-operated
      system or a high-production hydraulic press. Many brick designs
      have been used around the world, including interlocking dry-stack
      shapes, and even partially hollow forms.
