Life saving polluter
Worldwide in volume rubble is the biggest polluter of the environment,caused by urban developments, wars and disasters.It not only causes a huge ecological footprint, i tkills people due to bad constructions. The Flying Dutchman of TheMobileFactory transforms rubble on location into certified building products for safe, affordable housing. No longer victims of disasters and wars and refugees on the run are forced to live in swampy tents for years. People in this situation become traumatized and have one hope: their own home, the basis of a future.
Self help, the break through of the poverty circle
The MobileFactory has not only developed a technology, fitting in 2 containers, to transform rubble into high qualified building materials, it has developed a constructionsystem, which allows victims of disaster and refugees to build their own homes. Our centre goalis to share knowledge and technology with organizations, which core business is to provide safe, dignified and affordable housing for these growing groups of victims.
