Compressed Earth Block Research
Students and faculty from the College of Architecture headed to Washington D.C. April 21-23, 2012 to compete for Phase II funding from the Environmental Protections Agency. After demonstarting their earth block technology on the National Mall during the expo and competition, the CEB team was awarded a $90,000 grant. The grant is allowing the team to build and monitor a Habitat for Humanity house out of compressed earth blocks and compare the CEB home to a conventionally wood-framed house on an adjacent lot. The team received EPA P3 Phase I funding in the summer of 2011. Read more
