It was already clear in advance that the new materials, if properly produced and assembled, represent a significant technological and practical alternative to the products used up to now. By gaining practical experience now and collecting measurement results, the initiators hope that construction companies will choose sustainable materials more quickly in the future. The results will be presented at a later stage in the 3N Kompentenzzentrum in Werlte.
However, biobased construction is not just about insulating materials. It is also important to avoid harmful substances, such as toxic adhesives. There is also an alternative available for this with biobased glue. This glue is currently being tested by the Arnhem (The Netherlands) based company Plantics. The project also tests sustainable alternatives for the load-bearing elements in the building.
