The average age of a building in the EU is 75 years; most domestic buildings were built in the 1950’s, most of which are very space and energy inefficient.
The requirement for affordable high performance “Zero Carbon” housing throughout the EU and US is hundreds of thousands per annum just to keep up with housing stock replacement not to mention the increase in population, increase in lifespan and single parent families.
Most buildings being built today are still using inefficient, energy intensive materials and inefficient and costly methods of building.
Aggregates and cementitous materials are very energy intensive and the trees that are growing today need to be left in place to absorb as much CO2 from the atmosphere as possible for at least half a century. Society produces large quantities of waste, much of the waste is reusable, and its conversion has a minimal carbon footprint.
The material content of BioCreTx can vary depending on local raw material sources, but is mainly made up of waste paper/wood, grit/glass, aluminium and plastics.
BioCreTx structural sandwich panels are formed into factory finished walls, floors or roofs using a HEATx press that incorporates ETx electro textile materials to create very cost effective, large vacuum presses / autoclaves.
BioCreTx is made of compressed waste biomass, including straw, paper, wood particles and plastics and produced into factory finished walls and floors in a very cost and energy efficient process so are carbon negative, unlike most other commercially available building materials.
The key is that they are formed in two processes from raw material into a panel and then a panel into a factory finished wall, floor or roof, then they can be toaster racked to site to be joined using a simple jointing system.
