    Abstract : Byggandet i Sverige står för 20 % av landets utsläpp av växthusgaser. För att minska utsläppen krävs nya byggnadstekniker där byggnader med stomme byggd av korslimmat trä (KL-trä) är ett bra alternativ. Flera fabriker för korslimmat trä har nyligen byggts och kommer att byggas i Sverige det kommande året. READ MORE
