LORENZ as a Gateway for Climate Protection in the Region

Two events marked the beginning of the year for the headquarters in Taucha. On February 1st, 15 members of the Leipzig Building Circle honored us with their presence to inform each other about their respective projects. The Leipzig Building Circle caters to all builders, architects, students, and executing companies who care about healthy, resource-efficient, and circular construction in the region. LORENZ was able to demonstrate its products and approaches on-site using demonstration objects.

A Climate-Friendly District – How Do We Achieve That?

On February 6th, “the climate-friendly district” was the main concern and topic for a keynote speech by Bertram Fleck and Heinrich Strößenreuther. Both are representatives of the Climate Union e.V., which aims to bring about the climate transition in municipalities through positive examples. Bertram Fleck was a CDU district administrator in the Rhein-Hunsrück district, which has been the first climate-neutral district in Germany since 2020.
Starting in the 1990s, with his initiatives and initiatives, biogas plants, solar plant cadastres, and energy monitoring were implemented as measures. Meanwhile, the district has its own fertilizer production and its own car-sharing offers with electric cars. Even in the smallest areas, he managed to motivate citizens to participate: starting with LED exchange campaigns, which have now been going on for 25 years, to the delivery of kitchen waste for the local biogas plant. This earns and saves the district about €335 million per year, which stays in the region.

Wooden Frame Systems with Straw Insulation as CO2 Sink and Operating Cost Reducer

LORENZ, as the host, used the evening to introduce the approximately 35 interested parties from the region, including mayors, entrepreneurs, and representatives of the city of Taucha, to the positive insulation properties of straw building products. Using the example of Europe’s largest straw insulation project in Oberhausen, where it was possible to reduce 8% of the annual energy cost budget, the audience could be convinced of the large-scale application of straw as a building and insulation material that is easily feasible.
