THREE C Bench (TITLE OF THE ARTEFACT)
FIRST PARAGRAPH OF DESCRIPTION GOES HERE Concrete is probably the most important building material used worldwide. The production of concrete, however, emits extremely high quantities of CO2. If we could substitute less than 10% of ingredients with biochar made from bio-waste we could create a CO2 neutral concrete.
ADDIDTIONAL WRITTEN DESCRIPTION/CONTENT GOES HERE
Within the THREE C project a prototype was developed to produce this CO2 neutral concrete for public water channel pipes. Some of the concrete parts or the channel were up-cycled to become the main structure of the THREE C Bench.
The Bench consists of the concrete bowl (filled with a biochar plant substrate), a wooden seat and a scaffold for climbing plants
The THREE C Bench serves as public furniture – to:
- enrich public & private places
- demonstrate applied sustainable development in the building industry
- support public private community partnership projects
- provide opportunities for urban gardening and animal aided design
