In these years there has been a strong growth in environmental sensitivity and this has led both companies and individuals to pay particular attention to the choice and use of environmentally friendly materials.
This is how sustainable building is born, characterized by the use of green materials, which safeguard the environment, minimizing the consumption of non-renewable energy.
But which are the requirements that materials must have in order to be labelled eco-sustainable?
There are five and they are:
1) Environmental impact of materials at every stage of life
2) Inclusion of renewable raw materials in the production process
3) Lack of harmful emissions in households
4) Low pollutant production
5) High durability and recyclability
When assessing whether a material is environmentally sustainable, we need to assess its life cycle and the impact it can have on the environment.
The life cycle is measured on the basis of two values: energy (energy consumption necessary to produce the material) and environmental (waste released into the environment by the material).
Only if all these aspects are respected can it be defined as eco-sustainable.
The continuous surfaces Oltremateria, the eco-resin Ecopur and the Ecomalta and Oleomalta go in this way.
They do not emit harmful VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), nor formaldehyde, so much so that the Japanese analysis laboratories that have tested them have assigned it the rating F***Four star, or the maximum!
They do not develop gases that are toxic to the environment and the subsoil.
Oltremateria with ECOPUR purifies air with environmental ionization and has obtained environmental certification with ionization measurements up to 2000 and/ions per cm3
It is the world’s first continuous floor and ionizing coating surface:
ionises and purifies the air without consuming energy.
It completes the ecological offer of Oltremateria, Ecomalta, a recyclable product, free of cement, epoxy resins and toxic substances and Oleomalta, the mortar based on sunflower oil.
If you want to live sustainability, live in Oltremateria world.
