    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the method developed by architecture professor Ginger Krieg Dosier for making bricks using the bacteria Sporosarcina pasteurii. The bacteria is known for its ability to solidify sand, thereby eliminating the need to burn coal or other fuel used in clay-brick production. Dosier estimates that carbon emissions would be reduced by 800 million tons annually if her method were to replace the current brick-production method. She uses a closed-loop system to capture small emissions of ammonia, carbon dioxide, and effluent.
