are faced with the challenges of producing bricks of satisfactory quality
efficiently, economically and sustainably with particular regards to
mitigating environmental change. Current technologies for brick production
such as clamps, down draught kilns and BTK’s consume large quantities of
fuel such as coal, firewood and other biomass. The devastating effect of the
pollution caused by huge amount of emissions from the brick industry has
attracted the attention of regulatory agencies who have issued deadlines
after which the polluting kilns are "to clean up or close down".
Shaft Brick Kiln technology is an energy efficient, environment friendly and
economically viable means to produce quality bricks. This technology was
introduced to India at a pilot scale in 1996 and presently 20 kilns are
operational. It essentially 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 clay bricks are
removed from the bottom end. During this process, the batches of bricks pass
through the pre-heating, firing and cooling zones before they reach the
In many developing countries training programme are offered to young people
in making them more employable or helping them to become self employed. This
emphasizes the need for large-scale, organized efforts to develop technical
and entrepreneurial skills in unemployed youth, aiming to make them active
and productive units of society. Generally, there is better recognition of
training among the business enterprises as it addresses their prime concerns
of optimizing the performance of the staff and enhancing productivity.
Training also offers them a possibility to keep abreast with the latest
developments in the fields of technology and management. This helps them to
respond effectively to competition.
Training is a process with clearly defined parameters. Activities and events
are arranged in such a way that there is a perceptible forward movement. The
entire process is underpinned by learning objectives. Training can also be
seen as a process of empowerment of the participants. Empowering also means
fostering a sense of commitment and infusing an urge in the participants for
subsequent action, on the basis of learning acquired during the programme.
training programme, participants are not offered a package of ready made
solutions or responses to problems or situations that an individual
encounters in real life settings. It gives them insights into different
dimensions of these situations or problems. It aims to develop within
oneself the capability to formulate appropriate responses through a process
of perception, understanding and analysis.
