Providing translucent wood plastic composites to reduce buildings CO2 emissions


We are fabricating translucent panels made out of recycled wood plastic wastes. Thanks to its low thermal conductivity, the proposed material will be used in greenhouses to enhance the ability of thermal isolation. Also, translucent Glassolina product has an optimum light scattering mechanism which enables it to enhance the crops growth and productivity efficiency. Thus, saving energy for artificial lighting & HVAC and consequently reducing up to 15% of the CO2 emissions as well as recycling tons of plastic and wood wastes.
