Sustainable, bio-based building applications

Since 01/01/2023, there are standards to allow bio-based products to be used in construction. Since 2024, there has also been more clarity regarding LCA (Life Circle Analysis) and Cradle to Cradle.

Greenager+ is therefore now fully committed to sustainable bio-based building systems, CO2 and nitrogen negative. Both floors, roofs and walls and both for new construction and renovation and modular building systems.

CO2 negative building systems

  • Flooring
  • Roofs
  • Walls

FOR

  • New construction
  • Renovation Market
  • Modular building systems
CO2 negatieve bouwsystemen

Ongoing research projects

  • Insulation: fibers of miscanthus, bonded with bio glue
  • Screed: slag sand screed, low co2 bonded with residual stainless steel flow
  • Floor tile: composite of miscanthus and hemp
  • Insulation: hemp fibers, bonded with lime binder as flux mortar
  • Screed: street sweepings, sewage sludge, dredging and crushing sand bound with lime binder
  • Floor tile: composite of brown and white eggshells
  • Insulation: fibers from kiri wood (Anna Paulownia or the fastest growing tree in the world, which absorbs maximum CO2) bonded with bio glue
  • Screed : flowing mortar from residues, bound with lime
  • Floor finish : cranberry wood laminate

Together with its Dutch partner WeLL Design, we are working on a modular building system of kiri wood and miscanthus insulation and/or cellulose of miscanthus.

  • WeLLDesign has the knowledge of modular construction.
  • Together with WeLLDesign, we are working on bio-building systems.

Our main crops

  • Hemp
  • Miscanthus
  • Poplar
  • Kiri trees
  • Sugar beet

Reasons:

  • Good earning model for agriculture
  • Supported by governments (fiber rights, seed rights, higher CAP (Common Agricultural Policy) and regional support measures.
  • Certification subsidizable – LCA back affordable
  • End products recordable in environmental database (end-user subsidies)

Our main residual streams

FOR INSULATION

  • Straw of flax
  • Verge grass

FOR FINISHING

  • Recycle sand, recycle gravel and crushed stone
  • Street Sweep
  • Metal slag
  • Sewage sludge – car wash sludge – sludge from building products
  • Dredging sand
  • Particulates

POSITION AS OF 01-03-2024

By 01 03 2024, it is technically possible to make and commercialize about fifty 100% circular and sustainable and/or 100% bio building applications.

We can flow, blow and glue, press, froth and make composite with all bio fibers.

We talk directly to the main agricultural chains.

We talk directly to potential manufacturers and processors.

Greenager+ itself or together with its associates has unique assets, such as:

-Sustainable alternative to cement based on natural hydraulic lime

-Three 100% organic adhesives

  • One based on sugar beet molasses and linseed oil
  • One based on proteins from plant residues
  • One based on protein extracted from sewage bacteria

-Bio resin

-Bio Aerogel

-All sustainable excipients in private label

-Bio edge insulation (from sugarcane)

-Bio rebar (from Kenaf plant)

-Bio hydrophomer/imprig lake agent

-Compostable flame retardant

-All fibers in any size (hemp, miscanthus, mamut grass, kiri wood, poplar, flax, straw and roadside grass)

-Recycle floor film

Meanwhile in progress or very concrete negotiations

In Belgium:

  • For Bioterra and Henco (Genk and Herentals).

-CO2-negative floor construction ( floor slab 100% from most difficult residual streams such as sewage sludge, street sweepings and dredging sand and this cementless on an insulation of hemp

-The recycle floor film

-Sugar cane bio edge insulation

  • For Maris Dirk (Arendonk)

-Sedum carrier for green roofs of miscanthus (as an alternative to coir mats)

-Flower pots of miscanthus ( compost in the ground)

-Bins for transporting the plants, in miscanthus

Bio alternatief voor PUR

In the Netherlands
