About this webinar

The Ricehouse Project tackles problems of two main sectors in the architecture and design industry: construction and agriculture. Just in the EU, buildings are responsible for 40% of energy consumption during construction, 36% of CO2 emissions, generate 1/3 of all waste, use 21% of drinking water and 50% of extracted raw materials. Ricehouse transforms rice residues into 100% natural construction materials that return to nature at the end of their service life in a circular way. The company is aligned with 8 of the 17 UN SDGs, mainly focusing on promoting and developing sustainable cities and communities through responsible consumption and production.
