Carbon cement technology for lightweight modular structures.
Small structures like garden sheds need to be easy to build and just as easy to assemble. Betondesign-Factory from the eastern German town of Schönborn has come up with a modular system called “Conwood frameworks” that combines the advantages of both wood and carbon cement.
The system can also be used for more permanent structures, offering good stability but relatively low weight. That saves time and costs in transport and assembly. The exterior walls also provide good protection against cold, heat and sound. The carbon cement technology received the German President’s Award for Technology and Innovation, the German Future Prize.
