Resumen

ROMO AGUILAR, María de Lourdes; CORDOVA BOJORQUEZ, Gustavo  y  CERVERA GOMEZ, Luis E.. Estudio urbano-ambiental de las ladrilleras en el municipio de Juárez. Estud. front [online]. 2004, vol.5, n.9, pp.9-34. ISSN 2395-9134.

This paper seeks to evaluate the current situation of the traditional and ecological brick kilns in Juarez. The evaluation is addressed in both the environmental and socio-economic context. The brick production belongs to the informal economic sector without any regulatory scheme and without taxation. Its very low technology has serious impacts on the binational environment of the Paso del Norte region, through the highly polluted emissions to the atmosphere. However, the social and economic context of people working in this industry does not allow important changes, thus, making difficult any initiative for the brick kilns improvements and relocation. The main information source was a very concise survey applied to whole universe of brick makers. Data survey was registered in a Geographic Information System (GIS) environment allowing us the analysis of the brick kilns in a spatial context. Finally, this document presents a descriptive profile of the brick kilns production and for the brickmakers.

Palabras llave : Environment; emissions; brick production; brickkers.
