MBM ScienceBridge today announced the succesful negotiation and execution of an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement between the University of Göttingen and the company Smarter Habitat.
Sustainable building is a key international issue in view of the shortage of housing, rising construction prices and the high levels of air pollution caused by cement production and the construction industry. Especially in drywall construction, the use of plasterboard dominates with all its disadvantages: dirt during installation, problems with moisture, no possibility of recycling and costly disposal as construction waste.
