Commercialization of Super Insulated Building Technology

Project Summary

The project is to reduce CO2 emissions from burning coal for heating. This is to be achieved by helping super-insulating, straw-bale building technology to be commercially successful on a large-scale in Mongolia. Also, less wood will be burnt for heating, further reducing CO2 emissions and protecting shrubs and forests.
