Eggshells are composed for more of 90% by calcium carbonate, which is the main chemical component of cement-based materials. Therefore, they can be used as substitutes in building materials or design applications. This process would reduce extractions, fostering the reconfiguration of the relationship between design and nature in an eco-syntonic way. The addition of activated charcoal allows to obtain a material that can efficiently filter impurities and toxins and therefore potentially reduce air pollution.
