Biochar

Welcome to the future of sustainable building materials.

At Durra Panel, we’re proud to introduce Durra Panel with Biochar, a game-changing innovation that’s revolutionising the way we build and store carbon.

Discover Durra Panel with Biochar:

In the core of this extraordinary building panel is straw & biochar, natural and eco-friendly components that set Durra Panel apart from the rest. Biochar is not just a buzzword; it’s a sustainable solution that brings a multitude of benefits to your construction endeavours. You can include biochar as an add on to any Durra Panel finish.

What is Biochar?

Biochar is a carbon-rich material produced from the pyrolysis of organic materials like wood, crop residues, and agricultural waste.

What are the benefits of Biochar?

Reduced Carbon Footprint: The production of biochar sequesters carbon, which can be used to offset emissions from other construction activities. This can contribute to more sustainable construction practices and help mitigate climate change.

Improved Insulation: Biochar can be integrated into building materials like insulation boards. It can enhance thermal insulation properties, reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling.

Enhanced Fire Resistance: When added to certain construction materials, biochar can improve fire resistance. This is particularly valuable in areas prone to wildfires or for structures requiring higher fire safety standards.

Reduced Waste: Biochar can be produced from agricultural or forestry waste materials, providing an eco-friendly way to reduce waste while creating a useful construction resource.

Better Indoor Air Quality: Building materials containing biochar may have the potential to enhance indoor air quality by adsorbing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other pollutants.

Bio-Based Composites: Biochar can be combined with other natural fibers such as wheat straw to create bio-engineered construction materials like Durra Panel.

End Of Life: At the end of its useful life (70 – 100 years), Durra Panel containing biochar is 100% biodegradable and can be returned to the earth to improve soil quality, promote plant growth and restore the environment.

Durra Panel with Biochar is more than just a construction material; it’s a commitment to a greener, safer, and more efficient future.¬†Whether you’re a construction professional or a conscientious homeowner, this amazing product will take your projects to the next level.
