Greener and Eco-Friendly
Because we do not use steel, iron or Portland Cement during construction we produce 75 to 85 % less CO 2 . Because we do not use steel supported walls or other forms, upon completion of the project we have as little as 0 % waste.
The second most used material on our planet is cement (water is #1). In 2018, 4 billion tons of cement were produced For every ton of cement produced, 0.75 to 0.85 tons of CO2 are released into our atmosphere. That was a total of 3.2 billion tons of CO2 in 2018. Portland cement production corresponds to the CO2 emissions of approx. 581 million cars. That includes all cars in Europe, America and China. We would need about 105,218 square kilometers of forest to convert this amount of CO2 back into oxygen. That would be 1 ½ times the size of Ireland.
If we want to build comfortable, modern and durable cities and infrastructures for the next generation while protecting and preserving our planet, then we MUST use these technologies.
BUILD, USE and RECYCLE
This means: Away from the common construction method “destroy resources, build and dispose of”, which moves linearly in a destructive direction, and towards an economic cycle of “BUILD, USE and RECYCLE”.
Geopolymer is HIGH PERFORMANCE with LITTLE IMPACT on our environment.
