ECOBoard Bio based Panels are made from agricultural residues such as straw or reeds and bonded together with the natural lignine without any formaldehyde.
The new municipal office of Venlo in the Netherlands is built according to the Cradle-to-Cradle (C2C) principles. This means Venlo is the first commune in the world that fully applies the C2C in practice. ECOBoard Europe B.V. is proud to say that it will deliver a significant amount of boards to support this commune!
The measures require an additional investment of 3.4 million Euro, while a saving of around 17 million is expected over the coming forty years. Construction starts in may 2012 and in 2014 the sustainable municipal office is expected to be ready!
The municipal office gets triple glazing, heat/cold storage, solar panels and led lighting. A ‘solar chimney ‘ should ensure a natural air flow through the building. The building purifies the polluted air of the adjacent road and is cooled by the river Meuse and the underlying parking garage. The Office and the greenhouses generate heat for homes. Rain water is used and purified before it flows again into the Meuse.
