INTRODUCING RUBACON, Part 2

TECHNOLOGY FOR UTILISATION OF RENEWABLE RESOURCES

OXIDOREDUCTASE PROCESS
Mineral powders may be extracted by the RENEW Oxidoreductase process, which advantageously results in simultaneous production of natural fertliizer and methane gas.The powders will find use as component in pellet adhesive, coating for panels and in products such as flooring and wall tiles.

THE MATERIALS
A short list of renewable resources includes:
Tobacco Waste Banana By-product
Bagasse Cotton Ginning Stems
Sawmill Waste Rice Husk and Straw
Wheat Straw Maize Foliage
Horsetail Grass Soya Bean Stems

RENEW DENSE
The properties of the dense version of a fine powder composition are as follows:

WATER ABSORPTION
Immersion in H2O
One Side ± 9% by cured weight
Immersion in H2O
Complete ± 23% by cured weight
Water Repellancy Excellent – Water forms droplets on surface
Surface Coating To enhance strength properties and reduce H2O penetration

RENEW CELLULAR
The properties of the cellular version of a fine powder composition are as follows:

Specific Gravity 270 Kilos / m3
Target S.G. 250 Kilos / m3
Water Absorption N A Surface treatment by Coating / Adhesive
Water Repellancy Excellent – water forms droplets on surface
Surface Coating to enhance properties or Panel and reduce H2O penetration
Suggested Form Pellets to form sheet with superior strength
Insulation Value Anticipated to provide excellent insulation in Walls / Roofing and Animal Stalls

INSTANT SHELTER
Based on the Renew materials, a system of instant shelter – From Shelter to House to Home – for the homeless everywhere is currently being designed by the RUBACON architectural design team. Two styles of construction are being designed, both with high resistance to storm and earthquake.

GENDER-SENSITIVE PIPE
In many countries, women and children often play an important part in agriculture. Irrigation is a most difficult task inasmuch as conventional pipe is quite heavy. Lightweight irrigation pipe of bagasse or straw will find a ready market due to the fact that it is gender-sensitive.
