Salah satu headline di situs Digg menarik perhatian saya, bukan karena kotoran sapi-nya tetapi karena melibatkan pelajar dari Indonesia. Inovasi ini bisa dengan hampir sempurna memanfaatkan bahan buangan dan menghasilkan produk yang lebih baik daripada yang selama ini digunakan. Betul-betul teknologi yang ramah lingkungan.

Selamat atas kemenangannya. Dan berikut adalah kutipan dari situs Inhabitat.

A group of students from Prasetiya Mulya Business School in Indonesia recently won the 2009 Global Social Venture Competition with their “EcoFaeBrick“, a quality, easily manufactured, low-cost sustainable building material made from cow dung. The bricks are not only 20% lighter, but they have a compressive strength 20% stronger than clay bricks and their production doesn’t rely upon devastating quarry mining techniques.

The bricks are made using 75% cow manure and cured in a biogas heating process that reduces the brick factory’s CO2 emissions significantly over traditional wood fire heat.

Ternyata bukan hanya para koruptor Indonesia yang bisa masuk level dunia.
