In order to achieve the climate goals, we have to act quickly. We at TRIQBRIQ want to have a positive influence on the sustainability standard in the construction industry. With our holistic concept and our climate-neutral building material, we will change the construction industry.
TRIQBRIQs are produced in a CO2-neutral manner. We use regional damaged wood to save transport routes, costs, and CO2. Our forests have been affected by the consequences of climate change for years. The number of damaged wood increases every year. The heatwaves of recent years made it easier for bark beetles to spread. Most recently, 32 million cubic meters of damaged wood were felled. Almost six times as much as in 2017.
So, what does TRIQBRIQ contribute to climate protection?
Wood is the only renewable raw material that binds the climate-damaging carbon dioxide during its entire growth phase and thus has a very good carbon footprint. The carbon cycle of a forest begins with the growth phase of the trees. In the growth phase, the trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. If a tree rots, the carbon dioxide is released again.
We intervene in this cycle and remove wood before it rots. Thus, the carbon is stored in the wood. In addition, we don’t use any concrete and cement. Concrete and cement are often referred to as “climate killers”, since cement production produces around 2.8 billion tons of carbon dioxide every year. This corresponds to 8 % of global greenhouse gas emissions.
