    De carbon footprint is een referentie voor wie met ecologie bezig is, en wint ook in de economie van vandaag aan belang. Bedrijven kiezen bewust voor partners met een zo klein mogelijke koolstofvoetafdruk. Dat beseft ook het West-Vlaamse Basaltex, onderdeel van Flocart nv. Zij verwerken basaltvezels voor heel uiteenlopende toepassingen, onder andere in de automobielsector, de bouw, treinvervoer en voor sportmateriaal. Basaltvezel is een minerale vezel en wordt vooral gebruikt voor specifieke toepassingen met betrekking tot brandveiligheid en sterkte. Basaltex was ervan overtuigd dat hun product erg milieuvriendelijk was in vergelijking met andere producten, en wilde dit op een objectieve manier laten nagaan. Wel, in de composietsector merken wij vandaag een trend naar meer natuurlijke en recycleerbare materialen. Basaltvezel is een natuurlijke minerale vezel en valt binnen dit plaatje. Als men gaat kijken naar milieu, dan denkt men direct aan de carbon footprint. Maar dit is echter een beperkte analyse. VITO gaat daarin verder en brengt de volledige milieu-impact in kaart. Via het innovatiecentrum West-Vlaanderen zijn we bij hen terecht gekomen. VITO ging van start met het opstellen van een milieuprofiel voor 17 milieu-impactcategorieën.

    • Urban Treehouse: Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse


      from Urban Treehouse / Added

      “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.” It’s perhaps the most common phrase in relation to living an eco-friendly lifestyle. More than words, it’s a philosophy that asks people to be more conscious of what they take and give back to the earth. While it certainly is a standard to hold ourselves to, there’s so much more to it than using a water bottle over and over again. “Living Green” is not only about improving the planet, but improving ourselves as well. This is the objective of the group featured in this week’s video, The Long Beach Depot for Creative Reuse.
