According to government’s calculation, Bangladesh has about 7,000 brick manufacturing units that are engaged in producing bricks in burnt method using top soil from agricultural lands. Unofficially, the number of brick kilns are much higher that annually claim to produce 15 hundred crores of burnt bricks. The sector is the largest green house gas emitter of the country and is widely resisted at the community level for destroying local agricultural production system and causing pollution. Successive governments have enacted laws to regulate the sector and make it environmental friendly through introduction of new technologies like the Hybrid Holfman, Zigzag, Shaft, and Tunnel, but those could hardly change the dirty face of the conventional brick producing sector. The existing law has put strict restrictions on locations where brick fields can be set up but the prohibitions are largely violated by the entrepreneurs against which local resistances and legal actions are also increasing.
