A bio-based insulation batt made from grass, for positive impact and high energy efficiency in buildings
Gramitherm is a bio-based insulation batt, with a negative carbon footprint ( capturing 1.5kg of CO2eq per kg of product), made from an abundant raw material: grass. Energy efficiency of buildings is one of the main targets to make the world carbon neutral as soon as possible. We aim at delivering a solution to this problem by providing an insulating material at least as good as any other solution on the market for its insulating properties, but whose environmental impact is unrivalled. Indeed our primary component is grass, an element naturally abundant all over the world, with a short reconstitution cycle time. Furthermore, our product has an estimated lifetime of at least 50 years, and it is easily and fully recyclable afterward.( it’s mainly grass after all ! - the product has over 90% of natural fibres right now, and we expect to be 100% natural by the end of 2024).
Contributes to reduce by 55% the annual energy consumption of gas and by 23% of electricity for this school, and trapped 15 tons of co2eq
