Call to Action- The time is now!
NanoArchitech’s nanocomposites developed at the request of FEMA and HUD are needed globally as increasing storm intensity wipes out areas around the planet more and more frequently. The days of creating Klinker in high-temperature kilns to produce a ton of CO2 per ton of cement are fading with efforts to preserve the environment and reduce global emissions.
Supermaterials are soon to become the new norm, saving billions of dollars spent annually in the US alone on structures built with legacy materials such as wood that are easily destroyed by water, fire, mold, and toxins. Building with super materials means that buildings endure greater extremes we are now facing. Resilience is the new sustainable. Not only are these materials resilient and eco-friendly, but they also create healthy, non-toxic, hypoallergenic interior environments and provide a safe haven for the growing population affected with respiratory ailments. If the homes destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and Katrina were built with our materials, they would still be standing and viable, healthy homes.
Cop21 and other powerful conferences and research results have awakened global awareness to the need to immediately improve the way we build and the materials we use. Our resilient materials withstand increased threats and extreme conditions. The time is now to get off of fossil fuel, use much less wood, end deforestation and stop processing common cement which emits a ton of CO2 for every ton of cement accounting for over 8% of CO2 globally! We can reduce this figure by 60 %. Let’s do this!
