This is an interesting twist on rammed-earth structures, but I’m a little dubious about some unasked-or-answered questions. Question zero: Has Popular Science never heard of rammed earth or cob houses? Also: how much does this cost? Obtaining capital equipment is a huge problem for cash-poor parts of the world. (And then you have to spend money to protect it. I’ve seem guards with submachineguns standing watch 24/7 over pizza ovens, photo processing machines, etc.) How much better are the bricks than those produced using less expensive presses or baking? And finally: dirt is a term that covers a huge variety of materials: sand, clay, loam… what dirts provide good bricks and is it different for this hydraulic press than for hand-presses?
So, with some caveats, here’s a link to the article: How To Make Bricks Out Of Dirt | Popular Science.
