Waste generation: The re-circulation of waste in novel materials and products ensures the trapping of embodied carbon within. Through this service supply chains can be decarbonised, problematic waste streams dealt with sustainably, and value added through creating regenerative materials to feed back into a business or project.
Case Study : Orford road project with GS8.
Biohm’s amazing R&D team carried out a variety of feasibility studies, contamination analysis and some indicative material development on the ‘waste’ streams from the construction site. It was able to regenerate soil waste to create a soil-based variation of its Orb material. This led to the creation of a viable material with amazing properties from which a collection of soil-based interior design products were designed to be installed in the newly built homes. These included Obscure lampshades, shelving and headboards.
This development tells the story of true circularity and showcases a huge potential for construction ‘waste’ streams being transformed into regenerative materials and products.
