Earth as a building material has already known for centuries started with plain mud and straw utilized sun dried producing brick adobe with low strength and durability until its evolved to become fired clay brick with mass rapid production in the kiln. In the growing concern of awareness regarding sustainable building material and environmental issue, Compressed Stabilized Earth Brick (CSEB) give the view of energy efficient, cost reduction and environmental friendly building materials, overall contribution on the sustainable development. It turned out that CSEB properties can be very easy bear comparison with other materials such as concrete block or normal fired brick.
