Waste Management Company Creating Eco Homes

A Shanghai construction company is the first to succeed in building 10 eco-friendly houses within 24hours.

Using an enormous 3D printer, each house created measured 200 square meters. Instead of using bricks and mortar the eco houses are entirely made from recycled construction, industrial waste and glass fiber mixed with cement. Each home cost less the £3000 to print.

The 3D printer measures 10 meters wide by 150 meters long and produces a high-grade cement and glass fiber material, which is layer with the use of CAD plans. The printer took over 12 years to develop and costs £1.9m.

WinSun CEO Ma the inventor of the printer uses AutoCAD Architecture to not only plan the building but also to calculate tracing paths that take into account the electrical, plumbing, installation materials and windows which will be added after the structure is built.

Ma stated “Industrial waste from demolished buildings are damaging our environment. With 3D-printing, we are able to recycle construction waste and turn it into new building materials”.

This new construction technology is one further step towards a sustainable future. It is also believed that construction costs could be dramatically reduced.

 

In the Uk we are behind the advances in Eco Homes internationally, but we are making headway. At the moment we focus on efficiency and insulation to save on energy costs. This is led by building regulations which are constantly increasing the standard of construction in the homes we newly create. It is believed that soon legislation will play a part, as the government are conscious of our impact on the environment. With the population increasing and a need for new homes, Eco Homes may well be the perfect solution.
