Timbatec founder Stefan Zöllig speaks at the Bau + Energie fair in Bern



Saving CO2 and building houses from it - is that possible? Stefan Zöllig will give a speech on this topic at the Bau + Energie Messe in Bern. We look forward to your visit on Thursday, 28 November 16:00-17:00 at the BEA Expo Bern.

Today we mainly build with concrete. But it is not without risk: according to the latest estimates, cement production accounts for eight percent of global CO2 emissions. That's no small thing! Moreover, sand and gravel are not infinitely available.   

Wouldn't it be practical if we could absorb the CO2 and build houses from it? That would finally be a good and convenient solution in the fight against climate change! 

What sounds like a distant, unrealistic future scenario has been practiced for centuries: with timber construction! The CO2, which a tree extracts from the atmosphere for its growth, also remains bound in the wood used. The more wood is used, the more the timber construction actively contributes to the CO2 sink.   

As part of a specialist presentation at Bau+Energie Messe Bern, we will be looking into the question of what timber construction can contribute to climate protection, what is possible in timber construction and where the limits are.
