Il cielo in una stanza

Husks-based Plaster

A family of plaster mortars obtained by mixing natural mineral raw materials, such as clay, aerial lime and natural hydraulic lime, with agricultural waste from rice cultivation, such as husk and chaff, deriving from the husking and winnowing of paddy rice.

This is an agricultural waste typical of the Biella area, where Ricehouse is based.

The use of these natural raw materials leads to carbon sequestration, the absence of volatile organic substances and formaldehyde and a consequent reduction in indoor pollution as the husk is able to actively absorb CO2 from the air present inside the building structures.
