Africa Industrialisation Day 2015 Rwanda at the STRAWTEC Factory in Kigali (TV report)
The annual Africa Industrialisation Day 2015 took place at the terrain of the STRAWTEC Factory and it was a pleasure to introduce our national and international guests our manufacturing facility and our ambitions for the industrial development in Rwanda.
STRAWTEC Production and Technology for affordable, fast and sustainable building solutions.
A 30 meter free-span steel structure accommodates the strawboard production equipment, offices, staff facilities, storage rooms and a pre-fabrication area at the Special Economic Zone in Kigali.
International demand for flexible and affordable construction requires an entirely new intellectual approach and highly-efficient building technologies. Connected with this is a need to apply and maintain these technologies as simply as possible; only then do they have the potential to function all over the world.
STRAWTEC technology combines heat and compression in a dry extrusion process that allows the natural adhesives contained within agricultural fibers to bind the fibers to form a continuous high-quality strawboard panel. STRAWTEC has an negative Carbon footprint, is 100% recycable and biodegradable.
The manufacturing process produces zero toxic waste, is completely nonhazardous and requires very low energy input. No water or gas is needed.
