Pure lime absorbs CO2 and helps improving the air quality.
The Spanish paint factory Graphenstone claims that his new developed paint, which consists graphene, preserves buildings by improving the thermal properties of the structures.
The paint with graphene consists of 98% pure lime. According to The Graphene Company, the paint is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional paint. Pure lime absorbs CO2 and helps improving the air quality.
CO2 emissions savings as high as 5.8 billion tonnes by 2050 WorldWide
Buildings are the biggest opportunity to reduce carbon for cities. A study by the International Energy Agency (IEA) shows that, if implemented globally, energy efficiency measures in the building sector could deliver CO2 emissions savings as high as 5.8 billion tonnes (Gt) by 2050, lowering greenhouse gas emissions by 83 percent below the business-as-usual scenario.
Most of these technologies are commercially available today and many of them deliver positive financial returns within relatively short payback periods. Read More
The new BAMB Materials Passports platform will fill a gap in the marketplace by providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ to describe Circular Economy value across the building cycle, especially for using and re-using components and materials, and reducing generation of waste.
BAMB 2020 is creating new business models to accelerate a circular use of materials, building components and/or building elements.
The business models will look into ways to create added value for each stakeholder and the identification of current bottlenecks within this new value chain. Developing business models will also require the identification of the business capabilities that are needed to be built/enhanced for the prioritized business components. Read More
Since the industrial revolution, we use cheap energy sources and special materials such as high strength concrete, carbon and mineral wool. The downside is an increasing use of fossil fuels and scarce earth materials, global warming and increasing environmental pollution. It is generally recognized that, in order to reverse this trend, we need to develop a circular economy.
Circular isolation materials can safely be composted or reused at a high quality level. Better for a healthy living and for our environment.
The circular economy aims to maximize the reuse of products and commodities and the prevention of value destruction.
Contrary to our current linear system, which transforms raw materials into products destroyed at the end of their lifespan. Read More
BetterWorldConstructions Green Architecture and Urban Development
BetterWorldSolutions intents to start a new platform BetterWorldConstructions connecting regional and national networks of sustainable builders.
The focus will be on CO2-reductions in the construction sector.
Low Carbon Constructions
We have chosen to change Circular Infrastructure into Low Carbon Constructions. Why? Because there are a lot of advantages to transform our build environment using biobased building materials, low carbon concrete, recycled products to a completely circular economy.
millions of tons of emissions
it prevents the shortage of raw materials
the good air quality (indoor and outdoor) improves health
100% recycling possible so its completely circular
The University Wageningen concluded that recent cultivation research has led to a reduction of costs of more than 50%. Sustainable seaweed cultivation is necessary to develop new production and market chains!
Let’s introduce to you the SeaFarm: It’s one of the solutions to secure food, feed, green chemistry and energy in the near future.
As per United Nations:
“The world population is predicted to grow to 8.3 billion in 2030 and to 9.1 billion in 2050. By 2030, food demand is predicted to increase by 50% (70% by 2050). The main challenge facing the agricultural sector is not so much growing 70% more food in 40 years, but making 70% more food available on the plate.”
