The efficient double curvature of a dome saves on costs by using fewer materials to enclose more storage space than any other comparative structure.

Locally available concrete and steel minimize the need for long-distance transportation to the site of specialized building materials or components, thus eliminating unnecessary energy consumption and resulting pollution.The unique construction method eliminates significant amounts of construction waste, and the dome-contained construction reduces dissipation of construction-related dust emissions. The completed structure more efficiently prevents potential pollution or contamination of air or water from stored products. Local materials, less waste, and reduced environmental impact result in overall savings and increased public acceptance of a greener project.
