|As a natural air filter, NAPORO TYPHA binds large volumes of CO2 while simultaneously producing oxygen. For each kg of its biomass, it binds 1.8 kg of C02. Per kg of cattail, 1.1 kg of oxygen is produced.
By using this plant, you are providing clean air for yourself and your children! CO2 is stored into biomass in NAPORO products. And when used as insulation, for example, that CO2 is bound over multiple decades. Simultaneously, oxygen is released while the plant is growing. By using regenerative materials instead of oil-based products, you are making a vital contribution to climate and environmental protection.
This means that you can bind 9,000kg of CO2 and generate 5,500kg of oxygen with each building. A person can live on that volume of oxygen for ca. 15 years.
Cultivating the material on moorland saves additional volumes of CO2
Up to 20 tons of CO2 per hectare can be saved by cultivating cattail. Moorland is very frequently dried out by humans, especially in central Europe, in the interest of carrying out agriculture in those spaces. However, it is often overlooked that moors will only function properly when moist. When they are dried, they come into contact with oxygen and burn cold (without flames), which discharges large volumes of CO2. This effect can be stopped by water logging the moorland again. The moor will remain intact and cease the release of CO2. Moist areas are barely utilizable agriculturally. NAPORO can use these areas for cultivating cattail. This example of bringing raw material generation and climate protection together is unique in the world.
Extremely low energy expenditure in production
NAPORO TYPHA is not only extremely light, it can also be minced in a very simple and energy saving manner. When a cattail leaf is compared with a piece of wood, the concept becomes apparent: The light material of cattail is inherently ideal for insulation. Wood is much more compact and can only be used to produce quality insulation with massive expenditures of energy. Test for yourself and use a simple kitchen knife to mince a cattail leaf or a piece of wood.
Insulation that reduces CO2, year for year
The light NAPORO TYPHA raw material is ideal for insulation by nature. 100% of it can be processed into insulation. When implemented in a building, this insulation material saves energy year for year, thereby reducing CO2 emissions. For each hectare, up to 200t of CO2 can be saved. This corresponds to ca. 50 trips around the world in an efficient automobile, or 2 million kilometers.
