This article presents the environmental assessment of geopolymer bricks produced from clay and waste bricks. The life cycle approach is the method used in this research to qualify, identify and compare the environmental impacts of geopolymer bricks and fired bricks. The results reveal that the manufacturing process of geopolymer bricks implies for the same compressive strength of fired bricks, a reduction of CO 2 emissions by up to 55% for clay-based geopolymer bricks. This research checks the environmental interests of the application of geopolymerization technology in the production of bricks.
