MOROCCO / Morocco Projects Program
Geometric tile mosaic made from glazed terra cotta, known as zillij, is a one of the leading artisanal crafts of Morocco. Zillij is an integral part of Morocco's cultural heritage and economic stability, but the production of zillij is not without its environmental side effects. The Moroccan government, with help from the Millennium Challenge Corporation and Arabesque Inc., a leading producer of zillij, are looking for an effective and inexpensive method to reduce air pollution from the wood fired kilns used in zillij production. Our project consists of our research and field work about pollution reduction methods, a cost analysis, and our recommendation for the most effective and efficient method for pollution control.
