Ibstock Brick has launched the Ecoterre Earth, an unfired clay brick designed for use in internal party walls.

Manufactured using recycled heat from brick kilns in a process that produces little waste, the company says the brick is more environmentally friendly than concrete blocks. It also claims its high thermal mass helps regulate temperature, that it has high acoustic insulation properties and that its hydroscopic clay inhibits condensation by regulating indoor humidity levels. The brick measures 105mm deep × 220mm long and is available in two heights: 67mm and 133mm.
