Towards a biobased economy
‘Miscanthus is an organic crop, from which bioplastics, insulation material for construction and paper are made, among other things; you can get a lot out of it. The fixtures of the LED lighting in our warehouse are made of potato starch and Miscanthus. I think this will be the crop of the future. In addition, it absorbs a lot of CO2, three to four times as much as a forest. That makes it a very suitable crop if you want to do business in a CO2-neutral way. I suspect that there will be more carbon credits in the future.
Not only biobased insulation material is at proof of concept phase in our Econcreed R&D pipeline (a 100% biobased and 100% fire resistant insulation material), but Econcreed sustainable construction material is already available on the Dutch market. Strukton (top 5 construction companies in NL) produces Green Silence/Noise Reduction Walls next to railways, residential areas, as well as sound absorbing& fire resistant tunnel panels, where the Econcreed additive takes care of water absorption regulation of Miscanthus biomass being used.
