We now have the only 100% bio-based construction system in the world.
After working with the biotech team at the University of Edinburgh, we've taken the non-renewable lime mineral binders out of our initial products (lime-hemp insulating construction blocks) and accelerated the development of this complete system: 100% bio-based, made from local crops.
It has the lowest embodied carbon out of any mainstream construction system. It has none of the plastic found in other 'natural' insulations. Each of these materials is a world first - more will be revealed when we are closer to production.
It gets even better: the system is designed by our certified Passivhaus architect to be able to achieve the highest energy standard in the world - saving 80-90% of heat energy over the average UK building. Yes, 80-90%.
When we combine our world's lowest embodied carbon materials with the lowest carbon Passivhaus design - there is nothing in the world lower than this system.
