Centre for ecological and biobased building
Stichting Agrodome runs an innovation and knowledge centre for ecological and biobased building. The mission of Agrodome is to stimulate and facilitate the transition to a biobased economy. The office of Agrodome is based in a demonstration house for the use of renewable building materials in Wageningen, the Netherlands.
Network organisation

The people of Agrodome were among others involved in LCA and EPD-projects, demonstration projects and knowledge exchange projects in the field of eco-building concepts, materials and products.

European activities

Green Deal

Agrodome is secretary of the Green Deal Biobased Building, in which approx. 40 SME’s, knowledge and education organizations are united. www.greendealbouwen.nl
This Green Deal is working on creating a level playing field for biobased materials, products and building concepts. The members are working on Legislation and rules, communication, education , marketing and sustainable procurement matters. With the partners from the Green Deal we have created the knowledge databank about biobased projects and products www.biobasedbouwen.nl
