Abstract: Clay bricks have been used in the construction for thousands of years. Paper sludge is also a waste material that is produced from paper printing press. This residue sludge is generally deposited in landfills causing disposal and environmental pollution problems. Laterite soil is used for many construction activities due to their high clay content. They are also energy efficient and environment friendly material. In this study 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% of paper sludge was added along with the clay and a combination of 15% of laterite soil with paper sludge is also added to the clay bricks. The properties such as compressive strength, water absorption, efflorescence and thermal conductivity of those bricks are analysed and reported. It was found that all clay bricks made with these materials shows higher compressive strength than that of control bricks whereas the water absorption increases with increase in percentage of added material. All the bricks showed only slight efflorescence. The thermal conductivity of the entire bricks shows a decreasing pattern with increase in percentage addition when compared with control bricks. Based on the observations made it is clear that 10 class designation bricks (second class) with improved properties and light in weight developed by using these industrial byproducts.
