UBC Okanagan; Engineering Department
We have collaborated with UBC Okanagan and have entered into a university and small business partnership. UBC Okanagan has been diligently working with wood-based fly ash stabilizers to create a lower embodied carbon Rammed Earth product. This will create our Rammed Earth wall system more eco-friendly by using less cement as well as reducing the amount of waste from the landfill. This novel fly ash Rammed Earth mix will be incorporated with as many of our future Rammed Earth projects as possible.
