More and more units in the DPRK are producing building parts by making use of light burned magnesia.
Light burned magnesia board can reduce energy loss when heating or cooling a room as it absorbs carbon dioxide and keeps low heat conductivity.
A board of 20 square metres has the same effect as having a 20-years-old tree planted in a room.
The Building Materials Technology Institute under Pyongyang University of Transport is turning out various kinds of building parts by means of light burned magnesia.
Various building parts, including boards for walls, ceilings, desks, handrails, etc. are coming into great public favour.
