Xiriton technology covers four interconnected domains:
(For interdisciplinary research and the circular economy)
1) Strategic landscape management through the use of C4 grasses.
2) Development of Xiritones and production methods (low-tech, ecologically and socially responsible).
3) New architecture combined with wood/brick/concrete/asphalt.
4) Recycling waste-free without fossil energy.
What does it mean Xiriton?
The term ‘Xiriton’ (for nomenclature and communication) is derived from:
“Xi” (gr.); Letter ‘x’ synonym for ‘multiple/variable’
“ri“; (lat.) “rhizoma” (Rhizome) that characterises grasses.
“ton” (old germ.); “Clay” (wider meaning)
“Xiriton” Is actually not a ‘concrete’ because suitable grass species are characteristic of this building material.
However, according to current building standards, such biomass is seen as ‘pollution’.
