LC3 Chocolate and Rum

Although many trendy bars now serve chocolate mojitos, a Swiss and Cuban mix is not obvious. Yet, when it comes to cement, Swiss, Cuban and Indian scientists have tackled one of the world’s lesser known but biggest challenges. As countries develop, demand for housing and infrastructure increases. Concrete is by far the most commonly used construction material to meet these needs, and cement is required to make concrete.

Post-disaster resilence and recovery

Some months ago we reported on a seminar in Guatemala, where the local Caritas had invited EcoSur specialists to pass their knowlege on to a group of young professionals who were interested in this ancient technology. Meanwhile the organizers can show real practical results, houses have been built, a promotional video is being circulated, a lobby group for adobe has been organized and a manual for self-builders produced.

A trip to the 19th Century in Ecuador http://english.ecosur.org/index.php/past-editions-e-magazine-285/533-a-trip-to-the-19th-century-in-ecuador http://english.ecosur.org/index.php/past-editions-e-magazine-285/533-a-trip-to-the-19th-century-in-ecuador

Proyecto "Mejorando la Vivienda" en Guano, Ecuador

In the small rural community of Chingazo, Ecuador, most of the people are small farmers of very low income. Many of them live in traditional huts or half-finished houses that offer no or little protection from the cold of the Andean highlands and against the ash spewed from Tungurahua volcano, Because of their socio-economic status, these families can not improve their situation on their own.
