They called it as Sugercrete, one of the best alternatives of conventional brick and slab panels in construction industry.


It is alerydy in a pilot project at sugarcane producing countries like in Uttar Pradesh, India to build a classroom from Sugarcrete bricks.

However, the use of sugercrete is in research phase that means the perfect understanding of strength and its behavior is a question mark.
