Transparency and ecology on the EMBARRO blog

Transparency and ecology cannot be separated. With our articles on the EMBARRO blog we want to contribute to controversial topics. This is based on my more than 30 years of experience in processing, working in application technology and as a trainer for the industry in the areas of gypsum, lime and clay.

The idea

Our product philosophy is based on the contents provided by institutions such as the Instituto de Baubiologie, in Spain the IEB. We are also convinced by the positive experiences we have had with companies such as KREIDEZEIT. The German manufacturer of natural paints KREIDEZEIT voluntarily publishes all ingredients of its products. Without full transparency, the title “ecological” cannot be trusted. Unfortunately, it is difficult for non-technical people to distinguish between information and advertising.

At the same time, we would like to use this forum to inform about typical questions that arise in connection with plasters and coatings.
