Standard Straight Interlocking Soil Block Press Makiga

When a block is compressed it looses 30% of its volume. This is due to the mechanical compression of the press driving out air pockets and aligning wet clay particles and compacting the clay around the sand particles. Compressed soil blocks are building blocks formed from stabilized or unstabilized compressed soil.
