Consultation by e-mail between continents

The Clay House Project in Namibia has detected some difficulties in the behavior of certain clays and currently are engaged in consultations with Latin America. Through e-mail interchanges between Peter Arndt in Africa and Sergio Betancourt in Cuba, the two colleagues are seeking to determine the causes step by step. They are analizing if it could be high salinity or the presence of guano in the clay that is causing the deterioration of the clay bricks after a time.
