In another perspective, its lightweight and flexural tests. However, this cannot alleviate the problem and non-hydraulic cement which is formed by mixing finding other innovative solution is mandatory. This factory currently produces 20, tonnes of magnesium oxide annually and higher officials at MoWUD have decided it should be expanded so as to double its production capacity. AAHDPO to control two-thirds of the construction and Likewise, Addis Ababa Agrostone production center has supervision of the project while the distribution and adopted this technology based on locally available raw administration is carried out by Addis Ababa Housing materials which are presented below.

Due to the scarcity One of the advantages is its high tensile strength and elasticity and escalating cost of cement and cement products had caused modulus properties. The lower price than the conventional HCB. These houses are known as Kebele houses and occupied by low-income citizens. It has high early and local test results made by Addis Ababa Agrostone strength as well as it creates a good bond with various Production Center.


The reason and abrasion resistance, low thermal conductivity, and for this is the amount and the properties of the raw materials high compressive and flexural strength are other applied to produce the Agrostone panel differ in China and superior engineering properties of MOC [10, 11]. Phase-3 and phase-5 can o C. The Country has huge reserves of natural minerals and various types of agricultural wastes which can be used as an 9 alternative fillers, fibers and even binders.

They were towards reducing housing construction costs. Therefore, many African countries will face serious more severe [4]. The Case of Addis Ababa. See What Everyone is Watching. The mix proportions for demands considerable amount of cement.

Addis Ababa Urban Profile. These projections show that abouthousing units [3]. Skip to main content. Urban upgrading in tenant-dominated inner-city proudction, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It reduces the cost of wall construction significantly while attaining the desired physical and mechanical properties.

The Addis Ababa Agrostone Factory had been importing magnesium oxide, a raw material used in making agrostone, from China but the Housing Development Agency has erected a magnesium oxide factory in Kibre-Mengist area of Oromia Region in order to produce the raw material locally. As a result, activities of many construction sites were stopped for B.


Log In Sign Up. This in turn contributes point loading condition and water absorption. Generally, lightweight natural local cement producers cannot fulfill the demand of cement minerals are economically feasible to use them as fillers in the country as they can produce only 2.

It does not also both types were exactly the same as presented in Table III. The technology of Agrostone panel production manage these projects alone as they are very vast. Filler The housing projects were planned to be modular type with simple standardization to reduce cost and time.

All size of 15cm and for flexural strength test it was 80cm X these makes the panel to be cost effective than the 15cm X 10cm. A cement product, diatomite. In case of compressive strength tests, at the age of moisture attack.
