High-tech, low-cost building-system, without any sand or petroleum-based materials

July 2021
Gallery ecocell 1
Gallery ecocell 1


Ecocell consists of high-tech but cost-effective composite materials. A conventional building with a living space of 100m2 causes CO2 emissions of approx. 30to CO2e, whereas the same building in ECOCELL binds approximately 15 tonnes CO2e in the wood components. In the case of Bamboocell, where bamboo is used instead of wooden boards, the CO2 reduction is further reduced to 30 tonnes CO2e. The structure of the paper honeycomb consists of 100% recycled paper and is coated with a recyclable mineral coating. The fossilised paper honeycombs do not contain any petroleum-based substances and can replace polystyrene insulation in SIP's (Structural insulated panels).
