Turkey has about 9 billion m³ of pumice reserves in central and eastern Anatolia, which were already very popular long time ago: the dome construction of the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was realized with this pumice stone. Due to its volcanic origin, pumice is a natural, ecological raw material with good thermal insulation and soundproofing properties as well as a high fire resistance. The porous pumice, which has a significantly lower density than conventional aggregates for normal concretes, is ideally suited for the production of lightweight concrete blocks. In Turkey began, from the 1980s, the production of professional lightweight construction elements and their demand increased rapidly since the mid-1990s.
