G-Brick
Nowadays, there are many types of newly invented mix concrete such as concrete with oil palm shell, egg shell, rubber; and more. In this innovation, Spent Bleaching Earth (SBE) and Red Gypsum (RG) have been used for the making of green brick. Both SBE and RG are industrial solid wastes which generated from palm oil refineries and pigment making plant respectively. With the new invention of g-Brick, it can reduce the waste of SBE produced from vegetable oil industries which is estimated at 330,000 tons annually in Malaysia alone. So as well with the RG, with the production rate at 340,000 tons/year, which can help to reduce the disposal of waste in landfills. However, only g-Brick made of RG will be focused for commercial purpose due to the greater rate of generation of the waste, lack of designated landfill for the waste and limited production capacity of the machine as well.

OBJECTIVE
To reduce the disposal problem of industrial solid waste to the environment and finally lead to the reduction of industrial waste to landfills.
To offer an economical option to the development of new construction materials and design that utilizes existing technologies which lead to another choice in the current markets for greener environment.

INNOVATION
An important aspect in this product is to implement the existing technology and technique for a simple innovation of making green brick from waste. The functions of the innovation are to reduce the industrial wastes (zero waste) and finally to be implemented as a non-load bearing structure. This innovation offer a new mixture for the brick mix design which means less cement usage, less cost and help towards greener environment.

ADVANTAGES
  • Increase brick density with simple mixing process thus leading to lower material cost.
  • High compressive strength (12 N/mm2) compared to standard bricks thus making it a perfect choice for today’s construction situation.
  • Environmental friendly approach as the production promote reduction of waste to the landfills.
  • Offer a new opportunity of business in recycling of waste for making green brick (waste-to wealth concept.

Mercury Spillage-Safety Decontamination Kit (MERKIT)
WHAT IS MERCURY TOXICITY?
Mercury is a dense, silvery metal used in thermometers, pressure gauges such as sphygmos and for some chemical processes. It is poisonous in all its forms-more so than arsenic and cadmium. Usually, the harmful effects of mercury poisoning are seen after exposure to mercury vapour, which is readily given off by the liquid metal; for example, after a spillage or breakage of equipment.

HOW DOES MERCURY ENTER THE BODY?
Mercury compounds are well absorbed by the body after ingestion, skin exposure and aspecially via the lungs. It is the efficient absorption of mercury vapour by the lungs while working in a contaminated environment which poses the greatest risk.
The world health organization has set a safe maximum working level of 0.05mg per cubic metre-the TLV (time limited value)- to which workers may be exposed for 8 hours per day without risk. But in a poorly ventilated, heavily contaminated room, mercury vapours level of 400 times the TLV can be reached, putting the occupants at serious risk of toxicity

PROTECTION FROM MERCURY EXPOSURE
The chief protection against mercury vapour is the prompt use of mercury spillage procedures. Health and safety executive regulations require that anywhere hazardous chemicals- including mercury- are used, a means of controlling spillage and human exposure must be provided. Most health authorities to have mercury spillage kits, hospitals, schools and industrial laboratories should also comply under Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) guidelines.

MERKIT 

COMPLETE PROTECTION AGAINST MERCURY EXPOSURE HAZARDS FROM BROKEN THERMOMETERS IN THE LABORATORY, HOSPITAL AND SCHOOL
  • Ideal for use in commercial laboratories, hospital and school
  • Kit can be used to deal up to two spillage before requiring spares
  • Contains all you needs to deal quickly and effectively with mercury spillage, with full, easy to read instructions
  • Supplied in a strong, conspicuous case for easy identification in emergency kit
  • Safe storage  of waste mercury
  • Full compliance with health and safety executive inspections
