Eco-materials, also known as ecological materials, contribute towards environmental protection and not to mention a good quality of life. Natural materials are renowned for their efficiency. Their environmental impact is low or quasi neutral, which is why they are recommended for both professional and personal use.
Less Environmental Pollution
Made from natural resources such as lime, hemp, wood or cork, eco-materials considerably reduce the risk of pollution. Some eco-materials are also derived from recyclable components, notably newspaper and cotton. These recyclables require little processing, hence minimising health hazards resulting in lower energy usage. Also, being minimally processed, eco-materials are recyclable and biodegradable. They also differ from traditional insulation systems due to their low thermal conductivity.
Eco-materials are energy efficient, without having any impact on their effectiveness. Used during construction, renovation and finishing stages, they yield lasting results and are significantly more efficient compared to traditional materials.
Eco-materials are primarily used to ensure environmental protection. The natural components of the eco-materials limit toxic fumes harmful to ones health. Using environmentally friendly materials encourages using less polluting products and contributes to the sustainability of the economy. Inexpensive and made to last, they are an excellent investment for architects and construction professionals. The manufacture of eco-materials offers several benefits, including the creation of new jobs in the craftsmanship and agricultural fields.
