The event

Emerging Barcelona-based firm Honext has come up with a revolutionary waste reclaiming process that turns cellulose residue into a fully recyclable, construction-ready material. Honext goes straight to the source of paper waste, partnering with paper mills and waste disposal facilities to collect cellulose debris right where it is generated and produce a sustainable alternative to traditional building materials. Until now paper could only be recycled up to a certain point. After a few reuse cycles, the remaining cellulose fibres are too short to be bound together by conventional means, destined to end up in a landfill or be burnt. Honext is currently reaching out to world-leading architects and designers to explore ways in which its boards can be used to build healthier and more sustainable environments that meet the needs of both the industry and the end-user
