High energy costs, increasingly expensive construction labor and equipment, and a higher environmental consciousness of home owners, has forced home builders to search for new construction materials. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is well known as an environmentally friendly construction material. Compared to the energy consumed in production of many other basic building materials, only a fraction is required to produce AAC. Raw material consumption is very low for the amount of finished product produced.
