Keywords: Life Cycle Assessment, Kiln Burnt Brick, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, Life Cycle Assessment Impact Categories, Raw Material Index

Abstract: In most of the cases Autoclaved aerated Concrete block is stronger than a Conventional brick made of clay and both of them have their pros and cons. Brick and Cement are majorly used materials in building industry. Kiln Burnt Brick is majorly use exterior wall material in the market. Also, Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a non combustible, cementatious building material that is expanding into new worldwide markets. Here we aimed to compare the environmental impact of materials- Kiln Burnt Brick and Autoclaved Aerated Concrete used for wall assemblies. The final objective is to evaluate the materials on the bases of Life Cycle Assessment Impact Categories which includes: Raw Material Index (RMI), Water consumption, Embodied Energy (EE) and Operational Energy (U-Value), Electricity, Occupational Health and Safety (OHS Index), Total Cost, CO2 Emissions.
