This natural substitute for wood takes advantage of the strength and hardness of different species of coconut shells, which, after being crushed, mixed and pressed with vegetal-based resins, produces plaques of various sizes and configurations for use in construction as flooring and as cladding for walls and furniture. “Cocosbeton” provides visual and tactile comfort, improves thermo-acoustic insulation, is sustainable and fixes carbon. Furthermore, its production is clean, does not generate waste and causes a positive impact on the environment.
