Heating, cooling and the electricity needs of buildings together account for approximately 47% of CO2 emissions in construction. However, the current focus on energy savings is increasingly leading to an unpleasant indoor climate and even unhealthy buildings.
Healthy living starts with a healthy indoor climate. Biobased insulation products can make a significant contribution to this. In contrast to synthetic and mineral products, biobased insulation products have so-called hygric properties. The insulation material can absorb or release moisture depending on the relative humidity of the environment. In the project “Bio Iso”, biobased insulation materials are scientifically tested in various combinations. With these proven favorable properties, producers of biobased insulation materials can distinguish themselves in existing and new markets.
