betoShell® ecological assessment
Sustainable construction and design reflects the pulse of the time. Hering made this matter its principle for both product development and the building stock used already at the beginning of the 1990ies. With the development of betoShell® textile-reinforced concrete, these demands were fulfilled in every respect.
betoShell® - protect and conserve the environment
The low slab thickness of the textile-reinforced concrete elements allows saving valuable resources - up to 80% compared to steel-reinforced facades - already during the production process. The ecological assessment published at the end of 2010 clearly showed that betoShell® has excellent values in the field of CO2 emission and primary energy consumption and scores clearly better than many comparable facade systems.
The investigations were based on the requirements of DIN EN ISO 14040 and 14044. A frame of reference regarding production, use over 50 years and disposal of the facade systems was chosen. After the completion of the investigations, the results were critically reviewed. You can request a printed version of the ecological assessment using our contact form.
