Since SCANDI builds more than 120 homes per year, which is equivalent to one home in three days on average, the production of one home results in fewer CO2 emissions than two people produce in a year.
So the CO2 emissions from the production of one SCANDI house is equal to 2 people/year or the emissions from one car/year is equal to 1.5 SCANDI houses.
The construction industry is believed to be responsible for 40% of energy consumption and about one-third of greenhouse gas emissions.
This leads to global warming, climate change, and as a result, natural disasters, food shortages, species extinction, and increased health risks.
The use of wood in construction can help solve this problem.
Trees grow from carbon dioxide. The leaves absorb CO2, but only up to a certain age can trees release oxygen. Later, when the trees rot, they release carbon dioxide.
If instead we use wood of a certain age in construction, we extend the "life" of the tree by 100-200 years. One cubic meter of wood contains more than one ton of CO2, which is not released into the atmosphere. This process can be called "conservation" of CO2, which we remove from the atmosphere for as long as your house will stand.
Wood is a renewable natural resource. Over time, a wooden house can be used to make new products.
It is worth noting that SCANDI houses have a wooden frame and wooden interior. The main advantages include the production process, which takes up to 45 days, and installation, which takes 10 days.
The sawdust generated during production is burned to produce green energy. And thanks to the minimal amount of construction waste, our ecological footprint is significantly reduced.
Scientists claim that wood reduces CO2 emissions by 40% compared to concrete and 30% compared to steel.
The environmental friendliness of SCANDI houses is reflected not only in the comfort and coziness provided by the natural raw materials, but also in the conscious approach to the environment.
