Resumo

Development and sustainablility are issues that must be thought together.  Because of this fact, the reseach of new green materials is fundamental to minimize environmental problems. Tijolito is an example of green brick that uses less cement in its composition, mixing it with soil, minimizing in its production sulfur oxides, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides emission and also avoids waist of masonry. Those unites who compose the brick are pluggable and do not require mortar joint in the installation, reducing waste of material. Tijolito is fabricated presenting a high quality in the production process enabling the perfect construction of walls avoiding waist of masonry.  Decreasing masonry and mortar joint waste, less construction garbage will be produced, the construction time will be reduced and more money on the budget will be saved. Companies and individuals need to be aware of which type of materials are using in the building process, if the material is sustentable. Those materials need to be efficient in the function of they are doing in a building, but they cannot cause damage in the nature. Developing green materials, individuals and companies contribute for environment protection and for the maintenance of the resources.
