The TARA EcoKiln
is the most energy efficient brick firing technology in the world and TARA
is a pioneer in the development and commercialization of this technology; generically referred as the Vertical Shaft Brick Kiln Technology.
is the leading technology provider for brick enterprises and has engineered a revolution in the Indian and international brick industry. TARA has a rapidly expanding TARA EcoKiln
network, currently exceeding 100 enterprises in India.
Globally recognized, the TARA EcoKiln
offers huge savings in fuel cost, with savings of between 30 to 50% when compared with other common firing technologies. Pollution levels are extremely low and within environmental norms.
consists of one or more rectangular, vertical shafts within the kiln structure. Rectangular arrays of dried green bricks and crushed fuel (coal) are carefully stacked into batches, which are loaded into the shaft from the top and finally batches of fired bricks are removed from the bottom end. During the firing process completed within 24-30 hours, the batches of bricks pass through the preheating, firing and cooling zones before they reach the shaft exit as fully fired bricks. TARA EcoKiln
attracts the support of government agencies; demonstration kilns supported by MSME have been established in different states. Financing subsidies under PMEGP / CLCS are applicable to all TARA Technologies
