Over the last few years, the building industry has been focusing on research, on the construction of passive houses and on the use of natural, local materials that are non-toxic, recyclable and can assure high thermal insulation. Cork is a natural material whose qualities have been known since ancient times and which fully meets sustainability requirements. Cork granulate is a sustainable solution that recycles a waste product, which substantially keeps the characteristics of the original… Expand
