Created by Green Construction Afrique and launched in October 2014, Green Smart Standard (GSS) 1014 is a brick press machine that presses Eco Bricks. GSS has an approximate daily production capacity of 1500 bricks per day.
GSS is designed for the production of soil compressed bricks with little human effort. It uses a hydraulic system to exert a pressure of 3 atm (30 ton/m²) G on a mixture of soil and cement. Due to the massive pressure exerted by the machine, very little cement is needed to create highly compacted stable bricks.
The press is designed to produce interlocking bricks with two holes in each brick. The holes serve as conduits for plumbing and electricity during construction. The interlocking bricks are efficient in dry stack construction with reinforcement done by inserting cement mortar into the holes in the bricks.
Very little effort and man power is required to operate the machine. With three individuals working on the device, it can produce up to 1500 bricks a day.
GSS is portable, and can be moved to the construction site to eliminate the expense and hassle of transporting bricks. It is easy to maintain as it has a simple hydraulic circuit which uses common hydraulic fluids available on the market.
The machine is available in two models. One model uses and electric motor, while the other uses a diesel motor.

In 2015, GSS1014 was evaluated by MIPROMALO, the Local Materials Promotion Authority, part of the Ministry of Scientific Research and Innovation.
