CO2 emissions

Intelligent solutions to halt Global Warming

Global carbon dioxide emissions, which are the primary cause of increased CO2 levels in the atmosphere, continue to rise. In industrialized regions, the residential and commercial building sector alone is responsible for 40% of these emissions, which is even higher than the transport and heavy engineering industries.

In the EU, heating and cooling systems account for about two thirds of total energy consumption in buildings, and it is here that action must be taken to optimize energy savings. By introducing appropriate, eco-friendly thermal insulation systems, Kerakoll products can reduce the amount of energy used for heating and cooling by 70-90%.

But let’s not forget that the problem is not just caused by the energy consumed in buildings, but also the energy needed to make the materials themselves, such as cement, the production of which accounts for 5% of total CO2 emissions.

The mineral products in the ECO range significantly reduce CO2 emissions (to less than 250g/kg) because they feature the latest generation solutions containing less cementitious binders but with the same performance characteristics, and are made with single-component technology that excludes the use of plastic containers.
