Polystyrene, the main component of our product, has been approved and certified by regulatory authorities and is recognised as being an eco-friendly insulation product with the lowest environmental impact. Being more than 90% air, it does not release toxic or harmful substances, and it has no impact on the health of those who produce or install it.
The concrete we use has a CO2 cost of 121gCO2/kg material. By contrast, plasterboard is nearly 2000gCO2/kg. When creating a structural external wall for a house, GLB panels only require 80mm of concrete, which is the same width as a single brick, meaning the CO2 output is far less than a traditionally built house. Per m2, the GLB Panel is 33.5kg of CO2e per m2 compared to a brick and block insulated structure of 171kg CO2e per m2.
Our system provides up to 40% less CO2 in the construction of the building. The M2 construction system ensures indoor warmth and comfort. The top-level insulation provided by its Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) panels drastically reduces a building’s energy consumption and carbon emissions throughout its life span, promoting sustainable development and slowing global warming.
A comparative carbon footprint analysis showed that the M2 single panel building system produced approximately 60% less C02 than a traditional reinforced concrete building with masonry facing.
In comparison to glass, steel, gypsum board, bricks, and for structural applications, the M2 system utilises less CO2 in construction and in use; we can even outperform the carbon balance of wood for structural applications.
Our panels provide less waste in design and production, and can be recycled. As the panel is so light weight, just one truck is needed to distribute the material needed for one house, so using our system cuts down on the number of deliveries needed and congestion on our roads.
The panels produced using the EMMEDUE (M2) technology have been used to construct over 1 million buildings all over the world using offsite construction in various ways, from modules through to panels provided for the self-build market.
