Product development from renewable resources : agro-food chain entering construction market

Dam, J.E.G. van


For a long time, building with materials of organic origin apart from wood, was not seen as suitable for mainstream construction. However, recent developments in research and technology have provided scientific insight into performance and led to the development of professional products for the construction industry. Production facilities are being built and new products introduced onto the market. However, there are many more options available which should be investigated, as discussed by Jan van Dam.
