New NANO-technology based high performance insulation FOAM system for energy efficiency in buildings

Objective

The NANOFOAM project consortium is formed by leading and experienced players in the sector of manufacturing innovative chemical products, engineering nanostructured foams and materials, energy efficiency for the Construction sector, Materials Science and advanced modelling and characterization of material properties and thermo-physical processes.

Through the proposed RTD and DEMO project they will:
• Develop an innovative high-performing nanostructured polymeric foam, employing a low GWP blowing agent such as CO2 and having a lower thermal conductivity and superior properties (mechanical, fire resistance, moisture/fungi resistance) than commercial insulation products at a competitive price.
• Evaluate and test the compliance of this technology with respect to current standards and environmental, health and safety regulations in real scale settings (laboratory rooms or real dwellings).
• Assess the full technical, economic and environmental performance of the novel engineered insulation nanofoam for its commercial implementation on the market in new buildings and for retrofitting of old ones.

The expected results of the NANOFOAM project have the potential to drastically reduce energy consumption and to decrease CO2 emissions for both new buildings and the renovation of existing assets.
