Example of Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (Mud Bricks) architecture: Vikas Community in Auroville Auram Earth Block Press : Mud Brick Press by Aureka Operating the Auram 3000 Manual Mud Brick Press

Introducing: Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEBs)

Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEBs) rival the finest standard bricks available today in terms of strength and durability; are highly cost-effective and environmentally-friendly; can be safely used for construction of multi-storey buildings; and lend themselves to a variety of creative and aesthetically pleasing effects.

Compressed Stabilized Earth Blocks (CSEBs) are now considered to be one of the first choices among appropriate building materials for use in earth architecture and earth construction.

Auram Earth Block Press : an introduction to Aureka's "Mud Brick Press"

No small credit for this change in application and quality can be attributed to the Auroville Earth Institute (, a leading player in earth architecture and earth construction, and its widely acclaimed Auram 3000, the only Indian-made Earth Block Press (also known as "Mud Brick Press") exported for many years now to 44 different countries all over the world.

The Auroville Earth Institute developed the original Auram 3000 Earth Block Press in 1990 (named after the “rammed earth” construction technique, a precursor to machine-compressed blocks).

Since then the mud brick press has been the subject of continuing Research & Development, and has been considerably improved. It has proved ideal for builders utilising earth architecture, earth construction and appropriate building technologies without compromising the highest standards of quality, strength and durability.

Today it ranks as one of the best earth block presses for CSEB manufacture in the world.

Aureka's widely acclaimed Auram Press give outstanding accuracy and quality for a wide range of block shapes and sizes.
