New Danish houses cut carbon emissions almost by half!

By 45 per cent! CO2 emissions have been reduced by almost half in Realdania Byg’s newly completed MiniCO2 Standard House in Nyborg, Denmark, compared with a traditional, Danish detached single‑family standard build. 

The walls of one house consist of second‑hand shipping containers and its floors are made from champagne corks; another of the houses will stay maintenance‑free for 50 years; and a third house will ‘praise’ you if you keep your shower short to preserve your CO2 quota.

The MiniCO2 Houses project in Nyborg, Denmark, includes five experimental detached, single‑family houses incorporating practical carbon‑reducing solutions for the entire life cycle of the house – from construction to demolition. Lessons learned from the first five houses were applied to the MiniCO2 Standard House – an optimum CO2‑reduced house – while keeping costs within the average building budget for a detached single‑family house.

Peter Cederfeld, managing director, says: “We are delighted – in the shape of the MiniCO2 House – to be able to demonstrate how to reduce the carbon emissions in a new standard single‑family house at no extra cost. We hope that prospective house buyers, house owners, architects and other professionals in the building sector will drop by the MiniCO2 Houses over the next few months to see their many features for themselves.”
