Cellulose based systems for thermal insulation in buildings
The main objective of the project is the development of a modified cellulose material with thermal conductivity characteristic comparable to those of less ecological insulation materials. In the long term, the market share of cellulose based insulating systems is expected to double. The newly developed material would make it possible to get the material approved as insulator in multi-story wood constructions. Indeed, from next year flammable materials will only be approved, only if a suitable non-toxic fire protection agent is used, and if the material remains in the compartment, without collapsing. This issue will play a crucial role, especially in those buildings complying with Eco-standards.
Desired improvements in properties are the following:
