The Dutch ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation (EL&I) has released a policy on sustainable procurement.
A significant sector is building and construction, which accounts for 30% of emissions. The use of biobased building materials may reduce emissions and contribute to sustainability. Availability of biobased building materials, however, disappears in the overload of information on conventional building materials.
Food & Biobased Research has listed commercially available biobased building materials to make them more visible to the entire building and construction sector: architects, clients and builders.
A catalog with commercially available biobased building materials and their suppliers is available, including potential developments, example projects, R&D parties, interest groups, architects and building companies having experience with biobased building materials. Click here for information and ordering of the catalog.
