The best biobased construction material

Sector:
Industry

The solution

Straw-insulated wood frame panels have been used for centuries to construct durable, comfortable, and environmentally friendly buildings. Straw is a renewable resource that is widely available and has excellent thermal and environmental properties.

Manufacture Bois Paille produces prefabricated wood-straw panels using a patented technology that is faster and cleaner to install, helping meet the requirements of new energy regulations.

The issue

Steel and concrete production count for 20% of global worldwide GHG emissions. These materials, really easy to deploy and stable over time, are no longer compatible with our century stakes.

Sustainable Development Goals

MBP has a very low emitting industrial process for equivalent performance.

Core Carbon Principles

01

Unicity

All Manufacture Bois Paille carbon credits are only available on Riverse registry. The carbon credits covers all the activity of MBP plant, 250 Rue Georges Foulc, 69400 Villefranche-sur-Saône.

02

Measurability & reality

MBP carbon avoidance and capture are calculated with a cradle-to-grave comparative lifecycle analysis, on "global warming" criteria.

All carbon credits currenly available are ex-post, meaning the carbon avoidance and capture has already been verified and thus are real.

Key impact indicators:

  • m2 of walls produced
  • origins of biomass
03

Additionnality

Currently, alternatives to Manufacture Bois Paille wood-straw panels are highly carbon-intensive but 5 times cheaper. Carbon credits help to scale the process to be more competitive, respecting the financial additionnality criteria.

There is no regulation making Manufacture Bois Paille compulsory, respecting the regulation additionnality criteria.

04

Permanence

Manufacture Bois Paille enables to store carbon into construction for at least 50 years, implying a basic level of permanence

Carbon avoidances are not concerned by permanence criteria as avoidance are effective immediately without reversibility.

05

Rebound effects

Manufacture Bois Paille is aligned with the European Taxonomy and do not harm any of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Avoidance of leakage is also taken into account during the certification process.
