Carbon capture is going to be required if we are to hit out Net-Zero gole. Global greenhouse gas emissions come from a multitude of contributors. In 2020, the extraction, transport and manufacturing of materials within the construction and building industry accounted for 10% of these emissions. This figure is significant and not sustainable for the future of our planet, and so limiting the emissions output from the building sector is crucial.
Old building technologies like wood, straw and other plant based materials are critical.
Age-old building technologies like wood, straw and other plant based materials are critical. These bio-based materials require much less resource and energy to grow, and capture carbon within their cells through the process of photosynthesis.
Carbon capture to help with a greener future
If the building industry gravitates towards favouring these more sustainable materials, and generates higher demand for plant-based products, then the buildings of tomorrow have the potential to become giant carbon sinks, trapping carbon within the very fabric of their construction.
Qube Buildings are an environmentally conscious company with a passion to contribute towards a cleaner, greener future for the next generation. We are currently pioneering sustainable and renewal materials for use in constructing our beautifully designed and affordable garden studios. We use a mixture of hemp and bio resin to coat our composite panels, encasing the insulating core, which is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.
