University of Augsburg researchers looking at green building materials from ag and wood waste

April 19, 2021 |

In Germany, over the past four and a half years, an EU project involving the University of Augsburg has explored the potential of environmentally friendly building materials, insulation foams or fuels from agricultural and forestry waste. The results also show how much a holistic view is needed when using them in order to avoid undesirable side effects. The researchers use computer programs with which they can map the interrelationships algorithmically. In this way, it is possible to visualize how the optimization of one parameter – for example carbon dioxide emissions – affects another parameter – for example land use or soil quality. The sweet spots can thus be identified.
