Geoplast for low-energy home renovations
2 February 2022
More than 2/3 of buildings in Europe are energy inefficient. Our homes make up 60 % to 85 % of the total building stock, emitting more carbon dioxide than cars. EU legislation is set far off, planning to decarbonize existing buildings after bringing national action plans in 2025. With innovative solutions already at hand, we believe that it is unacceptable to wait for legislation while releasing 58.5 million tons of CO2 per year. Here is what you can do right now:
Installing green roofs and walls wherever possible reduces heating and cooling energy consumption. Completa, Drainroof, and Wall-Y create a layer of soil and grass that provides your home with additional insulation, lowering energy use by up to 43%.
Green outdoor surfaces
Green city surfaces lower local outside temperatures, reducing urban heat islands. Geograss, Geoflor, Runfloor, and Salvaverde create green transit and parking areas in a matter of hours, reducing the use of air conditioning in summer.
Rainwater storage and reuse
Water treatment and distribution are a prerequisite in urban areas increasing the energy demand. Instead of wasting drinking water for domestic purposes, use Aquabox, Drainpanel, and Drening to harvest and reuse rainwater for irrigation, sanitary use, and cooling systems.
