Nova Lignum developed Ceranex durable façade cladding from plant residues including aubergine fibres, grass from verges, reeds and pruning waste.
Plant residues from greenhouses form a massive mountain of waste, which is usually composted or burnt. But plant residue also comprises a lot of precious energy and valuable fibres – resulting in a raw material suitable for use in building materials.
Made from natural raw materials and containing no silica, Ceranex façade cladding is 100% recyclable with no oil related or chemical additives. Material properties include durability, water stability (no shrinkage or expansion), weatherproof, rot proof, acid resistant, non-corrosive against metals, extremely fire resistant and colour-fast.
Furthermore, Ceranex is easy to use and install and can be worked with like wood.
