Buildings, biggest opportunity reducing carbon

Low CO2 opportunities for Buildings (2)

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

Watch This New Modular, Circular CrossOver

Watch This New Modular, Circular CrossOver

Surprisingly this circular, modular crossover seems to be cheaper than other crossover constructions

In 2018 VolkerWessels will start building the construction of a modular, circular crossover consisting recycled materials and reusable elements.

This beautiful infrastructural project has been designed by VolkerWessels division Van Hattum & Blankevoort contributing the Dutch aim to be a 100% circular economy in 2050.

Green Cement is a growing Market

The global market for Green Cement is expected to more than double between 2016 and 2024 as sustainability becomes a priority for the construction industry. 

The global market is estimated to grow at a substantial pace in the next few years, thanks to the rising encouragement from governments across the world. Read More

New Cement with huge Carbon Reductions

New Cement with huge Carbon Reductions

If successful, the new cement will generate more CO2 reductions annually than all the traffic in a country.

Prof. Dr. Ir. H.J.H. Brouwers (University Eindhoven) investigates whether cement can be made of a steel industry waste: slag (metallurgy).

If successful, the new cement will generate more CO2 reductions annually than all the traffic in a country. 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.

Proven advantages:

  • 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

Nepal, the worst scenario

Nepal, earthquake, Mobile Factory, Lego, building, concrete, funding, shelter, mobile factory, recycle, reuse

Let’s give them hope. It’s not all karma. It’s your support they need.

This beautiful and peaceful country sufferd from a huge earthquake.

More than 9,000 people were killed.

Now they have to rebuild their country.

But the new government took most of our fund raised money.  Read More

Decreasing amount of CO2 at the production of Cement

Climate change, CO2 emission

An atlas of pollution: the world in carbon dioxide emissions

Worldwide, the cement sector has been very active in reducing its emissions from cement production.

On three levels:

  1. energy efficiency
  2. alternative (bio)fuels
  3. clinker substitution

Through the combination of these efforts, the emissions per ton of cement have been reduced by 16% from the 1990 levels of 750 kg CO2/ ton of cement. Good news for CO2 emissions, the greenhouse gas and climate change. Read More

Houton ®: ‘green’ concrete with wood

Sustainable architecture, concreet with wood dust

Houton®: ‘green’ concrete with wood dust.jpg

Houton ® is concrete in which wood has been processed.

This raw material combines the positive properties of wood and concrete. Wood does not normally bond with cement because it is an organic material.

However, by adding Megatrax® to the product it is possible to make concrete containing 30 to 90% wood. Read More
