Our lime plasters are not just healthy for you, but also good for the environment. They are free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which can have negative health effects and contribute to air pollution. Additionally, using lime plaster in construction can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of a building in a number of ways.
First, the longevity of lime plaster makes it an excellent green building choice. Unlike other building methods, it does not need to be replaced or maintained regularly, which not only saves resources but also reduces the need for energy-intensive renovation work.
In the construction process, lime behaves differently than cement. Cement requires a higher temperature to produce, increasing the need for fossil fuels and contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. In contrast, lime plaster is produced at lower temperatures, making it a more sustainable alternative. By choosing lime plaster, you can significantly reduce your building’s carbon footprint.
