Bio Composter made of clay concrete and wood

clay composter

This structure is a waste composter and it was built at the FCUL university in Lisbon. It was built in 11 days with the support of Horta FCUL volunteers.

Its structure is made of wood and the filling of walls is made of an ecologic concrete made of clay and straw. This allows a natural breathing of walls and cross ventilation of the structure, maintaining the optimal humidity levels and temperature regulation.

Concept and design by CAS studio and construction by CAS studio + Will Acker.
