Trifami 3D LTD

What is it about?

Trifami 3D is Hämeenlinna-based start-up company founded in 2018, to implement a completely new construction concept. We are coordinators of a coherent service package – an ecosystem with main cornerstones being new technologies, the right partners, and a circular economy. Trifami 3D LTD produces construction solutions that also the future can bear.

  • Conc­re­te bin­der cement pro­duces up to 5% of the world’s CO2 emis­sions (more than aviation!)
  • Glo­bal­ly, half a ton of cement is pro­duced per per­son per year and because of urba­niza­tion the demand is cons­tant­ly increasing
  • The­re is a serious search for a cement subs­ti­tu­te to curb car­bon emis­sions - but could emis­sions also be cut by recycling?
  • Reno­va­tion and new build con­struc­tion gene­ra­te huge amounts of demo­li­tion was­te, which end up as ener­gy main­ly through incineration
  • The EU ‘s mini­mum recycling rate for demo­li­tion was­te from buil­dings is 70% by 2020
  • Cur­rent­ly in Fin­land 40% of demo­li­tion was­te is recycled
  • Stric­ter emis­sion limits will glo­bal­ly steer con­struc­tion towards a gree­ner direc­tion in the 2020s
  • Demo­li­tion was­te and other was­te streams are found all over the world and they are often proble­ma­tic for their producers
  • Rapid recon­struc­tion of disas­ter areas is an impor­tant huma­ni­ta­rian issue
  • 3D prin­ting is a revo­lu­tio­na­ry and cons­tant­ly evol­ving tech­no­lo­gy that pro­vi­des an easy, fast and affor­dable way to build

Ecosystem

  • Advancing the con­struc­tion industry eco­lo­gical­ly and inno­va­ti­ve­ly
    - Deve­lo­ping Fin­land’s circu­lar eco­no­my
    - Recon­struc­ting disas­ter areas
  •  Uti­lizing demo­li­tion was­te and 3D duplica­ting a house on site
  • Brin­ging the right part­ners together

Trifami 3D coordinates an ecosystem where…

  • The com­pa­ny dis­mant­les and proces­ses the demo­li­tion was­te - with costs esti­ma­ted to be reduced by 30%.
  • The com­pa­ny proces­ses the demo­li­tion was­te and uses it to pro­duce recycled raw mate­rials to be used for its own use and sale.
  • The com­pa­ny manu­fac­tu­res its own recycled pro­ducts, par­ticu­lar­ly focusing on 3D printing.
  • The com­pa­ny owns and sells intan­gible goods for uti­lizing recycled concrete.

Reusing construction waste at construction sites…

  • Eases the work of con­struc­tion contractors
  • Reduces con­struc­tion and logis­tics costs as well as land­fill fees
  • Enables pro­duc­tion of more affor­dable housing for clients
  • Reduces CO2 emissions

Reuse of materials

Concrete

For the time being, the reused conc­re­te mate­rial is used in civil engi­nee­ring, but not yet in buil­ding construction.

Brick

Bricks can be uti­lized in the same way as conc­re­te, but brick no lon­ger achie­ves its pre­vious pro­per­ties when reused.

Wood

Can be used not only in 3D prin­ting, but also in civil engi­nee­ring and heat production.

Glass

Can be used as an insu­la­tion mate­rial in buil­ding con­struc­tion and in civil engineering.

Sustainable business

Business idea

We want to deve­lop the con­struc­tion industry eco­lo­gical­ly and inno­va­ti­ve­ly by crea­ting an eco­sys­tem which uti­lizes exis­ting demo­li­tion mate­rials as efficient­ly as pos­sible, and to pro­duce buil­dings using new tech­no­lo­gies toget­her with a network of partners.

 

Values

 

  • Eco­lo­gy - the cor­ners­to­ne of our ope­ra­tions is to reduce the bur­den on Earth
  • Com­mu­na­li­ty - our acti­vi­ties are based on mul­ti­discipli­na­ry exper­ti­se and com­bi­ning ideas
  • Res­pon­si­bi­li­ty - we have a conscience to take res­pon­si­bi­li­ty for both the envi­ron­ment and people
  • Posi­ti­vi­ty - we are con­struc­ti­ve towards chal­len­ges and always aim to find solutions
  • Deve­lop­ment - new ideas, tech­no­lo­gies and proces­ses enable our acti­vi­ties, through which we cont­ri­bu­te to buil­ding a bet­ter future
  • Equa­li­ty - we stri­ve to address chal­len­ges at a glo­bal level for the bene­fit of all humankind
  • Huma­ni­ty - we use man-made tech­no­lo­gy and ideas to bene­fit people
