LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT of a BRICK BEARING WALL

This analysis focuses primarily on clay. A brick bearing wall is composed of 71% brick by volume. Brick, in turn, is composed of 80-85% clay. Clay therefore accounts for 57-60% of a brick bearing wall by volume. A more complete Life Cycle Assessment, however, would include all of the constituents shown on the prior page.
