Building material with high future potential

The sustainable building material with high load-bearing capacity, low weight and flexible processing options

WOOD USE FOR ECOLOGICAL REASONS AND THE CLEARLY NOTICEABLE CLIMATE CHANGE:

The construction sector, in particular the energy consumption of buildings, plays a significant role in the CO2 emissions relevant to climate change.
In Germany, this represents 36% of greenhouse gases. Wood, as a renewable raw material, has ecological advantages and actively contributes to climate protection through its carbon storage capacity.
The process of photosynthesis (a chemical reaction of water, carbon dioxide and solar energy) produces new biomass and oxygen. During this process the carbon in the form of sugar is stored in the wood.
This forms the basis of life of a tree. At the same time, during the lifetime of the wood, the carbon is removed from the atmosphere. Only at the end of the life cycle is the carbon emitted again through composting or combustion.
The storage capacity of one tonne of wood is:
1.9 tons of CO2.

The German Forest

 

In Germany, wood from classified commercial forests is related . Its use in the building industry is mainly in the shell construction, in the facade design as well as in the interior finishing. The importance of the forest and its impact in terms of
 The ecosystem, as well as our landscape and our society, is illustrated by its high proportion of land..
 
32% OF THE LAND AREA OF GERMANY
CONSISTS OF FOREST:
Land area: 35,720,780 hectares
Forest area: 11,419,124 hectares

ACCORDING TO THE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION “DEUTSCHER WALD” (GERMAN FOREST), THE WOOD GROWTH RATE IS 3.8M³ WOOD PER SECOND, WHICH MEANS THAT THE PROPORTION OF WOOD USED BY LYNARSTARSSE IS RE-GROWN WITHIN 19 MINUTES

The history of Wood:

Historically, until the 19th century, wood was an irreplaceable raw material and was used in extensive areas. (e.g.: building material, raw material for tools, energy sources, etc…. )

At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century, wood was widely replaced or even supplemented by other materials such as steel, concrete and plastics as well as new energy sources such as coal, natural gas, crude oil and nuclear energy.

In the last 20-30 years the timber construction has again experienced new popularity. The development of technologies related to timber construction has led to the fact that timber construction proves a fast feasibility of projects, short construction times, great flexibility and versatility. The urban timber construction developed from a rather rural architecture.

Supported on a large scale by committed housing cooperatives and individual assemblies with growing environmental awareness and the demand for responsible use of natural resources, timber construction in the multi-storey area is increasingly shaping the urban landscape. The urban timber construction developed from a rather rural architecture.
