Project description

The most rapidly developing branch of the construction market is ecological construction. Ecological building materials have emerged as a response to the need for environmentally friendly solutions. Our project introduces the results of Expo-Drew's own research and development work, i.e. ecological fencing panels made of waste materials, which are innovative on the national scale. The panels are made of composite boards consisting of 80% waste material, i.e. wood flour and PVC, from our current production of ceramic tiles and exhibition systems. Inside there are elements made of sheet metal or steel closed profile. The new panels are intended for construction investors and the mass consumer, primarily for fencing in single-family housing. By introducing the new production technology, Expo-Drew contributes to the growth of circular economy - in the first year after completion of the project we will reuse about 73.50 tons of waste. The modern equipment of the production line has low electricity consumption. An additional environmentally friendly element of the project is a highly efficient co-generation unit producing energy from gas. In total, we will reduce energy consumption by 0.12 GWh and CO2 emissions by at least 106 tons per year. We will employ 6 new people. Under the project, production machines will be purchased - laser machining centres, automatic racks for storing raw materials and products, and a container co-generation unit. We will also make use of advisory services of the Norwegian partner - International Development Norway AS, which operates within the SINTEF research institute. The partner will adjust Expo-Drew production processes to the Industry 4.0 methodology and digital transformation.
