BIO insulation materials for Enhancing the Energy performance of Buildings
BIO4EEB will apply non-hazardous bio-based material as e.g. Posidonia and various bio-based foams to develop and to proof the marketability of smart components for external and internal use as material application, pre-fab panels or windows. The target is to support residential building´s construction performance extraordinary at all three hierarchical levels of construction parts simultaneously (building, component, material) by creating an amplified environmental impact and reducing additionally VOC emissions.
The use of thermal insulation materials significantly reduces buildings’ heating and cooling needs, slashing related energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Using bio-based materials for both new buildings and deep renovations can augment benefits, addressing the insulation material shortage while moving towards a circular economy.
