ECO-DESIGN

XTECH is committed to the eco-design approach for all our products and solutions.

OUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT

OUR ECO-DESIGN RULES FOR OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION

At XTECH, we integrate eco-design into our approach to offer innovative constructive systems for off-site construction. Eco-design is a truly methodical approach to the consideration of environmental aspects into the design and development process of products and solutions, throughout their entire lifecycle. Therefore, we ensure the use of sustainable materials, optimize manufacturing processes, and design products and solutions that are easy to maintain and recycle. Discover our concrete actions in eco-design, with a focus on the challenges of the 2020 Environmental legislation.

REDUCE THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF OUR PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS

LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT

Detailed Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for each off-site product, including Environmental and Health Declaration Sheets (FDES).

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY DESIGN

Integration of ecological criteria from the early development phases, with particular attention to reducing CO2 emissions and improving energy efficiency.

SELECTION OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

Selection and combination of high-performance and sustainable materials to ensure product quality and longevity while minimizing environmental impact.

MATERIAL OPTIMIZATION

Thanks to advanced engineering, including calculation methods and a combined numerical/experimental approach, XTECH optimizes raw material usage to reduce weight, refine shapes, and make the best use of natural resources.

USING SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS FOR OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION

Concrete is the material that forms the DNA of XTECH; its performances and durability are unmatched. Thanks to extensive R&D efforts, concrete is undergoing a green revolution: low-carbon cements, recycled aggregates, recycled concrete, eco-friendly admixtures… These developments now allow us to naturally integrate the concrete into our innovations, enabling us to address the environmental and economic challenges of sustainable construction.

INNOVATIONS IN CONCRETE

LOW-CARBON CEMENTS

Development of cements with a reduced carbon footprint, contributing to more eco-friendly construction.

USE OF RECYCLED AGGREGATES

Incorporation of recycled materials in concrete mixes to promote circular economy.

ULTRA-HIGH-PERFORMANCE FIBER-REINFORCED CONCRETE (UHPC)

These concretes allow for lighter structures while offering exceptional mechanical properties.

VERY LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE 

Design of very lightweight concretes (up to 50 kg/m3) with guaranteed thermal performance, contributing to the energy efficiency of buildings.

PROPERTIES OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS

XTECH also utilizes composite materials, which are almost entirely recyclable and offer exceptional mechanical properties. These materials optimize material usage and create lightweight yet robust structures.

RECYCLABILITY OF COMPOSITES 

The composite materials used are designed for recycling, thereby reducing waste and environmental impact.

MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

The composites offer very high mechanical properties, enabling the creation of lightweight structures without compromising strength.

By combining these innovative materials, XTECH proposes sustainable and high-performance off-site construction solutions, tailored to current environmental challenges.
