Environmental protection & Sustainability (Ecology)
Environmental and nature protection are of high value to our society. Wood, as a renewable resource that comes from sustainably managed forests, is the main basis for the production of laminated timber. No competing building material can be produced, processed and used with as little energy consumption and such low environmental impact as wood. It happens: smoothly, without waste and emissions, environmentally friendly and fully automatically - not to mention the beauty of this plant. Wood, bark and foliage are produced from carbon dioxide, air, water and nutrients from the soil. 1kg produced timber absorbs 1.44 kg of CO ². 1kg O ² is released into the air and 18.5 MJ thermal value, equivalent to 0.4 l of heating oil, is accumulated from solar energy. Evidence of this is provided by, among others, the Environmental Product Declaration according to ISO 14025, which is confirmed by the Federal Government and the Öko Pot, which contains planning assistance for hall girders.
- A positive example based on the current climate situation
- 1m³ of BSH by wood growth absorbs 950 kg of CO ², in other words a family house from BSH saves about 57,000 kg CO ² from 60 m³
- a motor vehicle, which has 140g/km CO² emission could therefore be driven for 407,142 kilometers CO²-neutral
- BSH are plus-energy-products
- energy efficient production in maintenance and disposal, i.e. no waste!!!
- 1m³ BSH requires 5670MJ primary energy
- out of 2.2 m³ of used raw wood produce 18,700 MJ primary energy, that is generates 3 times as much as it requires during the whole service life
