EcoMaterials: MicroConcrete Roof tiles and FerroCement Panels

EcoMateriales: Teja de MicroConcreto y Paneles de FerroCemento

The EcoSur network presents a short professional video on two major technologies, the Ferrocement panels and the Micro Concrete Roofing Tiles. Filmed in Nicaragua and Salvador, it shows production and application and gives a summary overview of those two materials that have a relatively small ecological footprint and have widely proven to be sustainable in the three classical dimensions ecology, economy and social acceptance.

The film is commented in Spanish with summary English subtitles and invites viewers to ask questions, as all publications of the network are open source.
