In the world of sustainable construction, Bio-EcoMatter stands out as a unique solution.

Beyond its positive impact when replacing polluting raw materials with agricultural and agro-industrial waste, Bio-EcoMatter stands out for its ability to absorb CO2. At the core of this biomorter is hydraulic lime, a conscious choice with benefits beyond technical properties.

Hydraulic lime in Bio-EcoMatter is key. During carbonation, a natural process, lime reacts with CO2 from the air and becomes calcium carbonate, trapping carbon. This phenomenon is based on the chemical reaction between hydraulic lime and CO2 present in the air.

In the carbonation process, CO2 from the air is absorbed by hydraulic lime, triggering the reaction. This chemical reaction produces calcium carbonate, which is a solid compound and the carbon of CO2 is trapped in this, which involves the absorption and fixation of atmospheric carbon. The specific amount of CO2 that can be absorbed by hydraulic lime depends on several factors, including the concentration of CO2 in the environment and the amount of hydraulic lime present. Generally speaking, carbonation is a gradual and continuous process that occurs over time, contributing to the net capture of CO2 during the useful life of the material containing hydraulic lime, as in the case of Bio-EcoMatter.

Bio-EcoMatter’s ability to absorb CO2 not only consolidates it as a leader in sustainable construction, but also elevates it to an active role in the fight against climate change. By choosing this biomorter, you are not only building strong and lightweight structures, you are actively participating in building a cleaner and healthier future.

Each application of Bio-EcoMatter becomes a step towards a tomorrow where constructions not only stand the test of time, but also leave a minimal carbon footprint.

Bio-EcoMatter stands as a unique solution that not only builds, but also restores balance with our planet.
