CIVA and BC materials have the pleasure to invite you to a guided tour of the BC production site, where ordinary earth streams – considered by some as waste – are blended and transformed into perfectly circular building materials, such as clay plasters, compressed earth blocks and rammed earth.
Every year in Belgium 37 million tons of earth streams are excavated and usually dumped in mines and quarries, hundreds of kilometers away from the site - not only a very unproductive activity (with hundreds of trucks on the road every day), but also a waste of very valuable materials. BC materials estimates that at least 16 (out of the above 37) million tons could be used as building materials.
The production process is CO2-neutral, as it does not need high heating mechanisms, contrary to other building materials. And the products are perfectly circular: in origin, as they were originally 'waste', and in destination, as the materials are not chemically altered and can be reused an infinity of times.
Do not hesitate to sign up for one of the tours:
- The 18th of November at 10:00 (FR)
- The 23th of November at 17:00 (NL)
- The 2nd of December at 10:00 (EN)
Meeting point at BC Materials, Avenue du Port 104, 1000 Brussels.
