Recycled sawdust keeping your Eco Home warm
This simple but clever machine compresses waste sawdust from our structural timbers into logs for wood burning stoves.
Growing timber for construction is a renewable resource that does not use large amounts of energy to produce and allows us to fulfil our commitment to minimizing waste and protecting eco-systems.
Is there enough wood to build all the houses we want?
Professor Chad Oliver of Yale University in a report (March 2014) for the Journal of Sustainable Forestry estimates the world’s forests contain about 385bn cubic metres of wood, with an additional17bn cubic metres growing each year. Only 3.4bn cubic metres are harvested annually mostly for fuel. There is enough and building with wood instead of concrete, bricks and steel would drastically cut global emissions.
High quality, high performance buildings that lock in carbon storage, this is a winning very eco friendly way to build.
