THE STORY BEHIND SUSTAINABLE INSULATION
Sustainability aims to strike a balance between economic and social
development and environmental protection.
Insulation is a key tool to make buildings sustainable.
But what about their embodied impacts?
Hence,we have to look at end-use applications to make informed environmental choices
Alot of claims are being made with regards to how‘green’insulation products are.
Consumers deserve a clear objective,harmonised assessment.
Insulation is not a stand-alone product,like for example a washing machine.Insulation is used in buildings/building components in combination with other materials.
PU BOARD WOOD BEAMS BRICKS FIXING DEVICES
CONSUMER CONFUSION
PU INSULATION IS LIGHT AND
REQUIRES LESS STRUCTURAL
SUPPORT,THUS SAVING
RESOURCES
PU INSULATION IS THINNER
AND SAVES VALUABLE SPACE
http://www.pu-europe.eu
Multi-indicator building
ratings based on EPDs allow
for informed choices for LCA
experts and architects.
Unfortunately,there is no
satisfactory communication
format today.This does
however not justify claims that
do not reflect real performance.
When looking for the sustainability of insulation,one has to look beyond
the factory gates.
How the product performs in the built environment,how much product is
needed to achieve comparable energy savings and what other savings can
be achieved by saving space and weight should all be taken into account.
HOWTO INFORM
PROFESSIONALS?
AND
CONSUMERS?
BEYOND FACTORY GATES
WHEN TAKING ALL FACTORS INTO ACCOUNT, THE IMPACT OF PU
INSULATION IS ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND
Different materials have different thermal insulation capacities,densities and installation requirements.
PU mayhave a higher impact at product level but reduces ancillarymaterial use and has a similar impact as natural insulants when assessed at the building (element) level.

Infografías PU Europe: aislamiento eficiente para la construcción sostenible

  • 1. http://www.pu-europe.eu THE STORY BEHIND SUSTAINABLE INSULATION Sustainability aims to strike a balance between economic and social development and environmental protection. Insulation is a key tool to make buildings sustainable. But what about their embodied impacts? Hence,we have to look at end-use applications to make informed environmental choices Alot of claims are being made with regards to how‘green’insulation products are. Consumers deserve a clear objective,harmonised assessment. Insulation is not a stand-alone product,like for example a washing machine.Insulation is used in buildings/building components in combination with other materials.

  • 2. http://www.pu-europe.eu Multi-indicator building ratings based on EPDs allow for informed choices for LCA experts and architects. Unfortunately,there is no satisfactory communication format today.This does however not justify claims that do not reflect real performance. When looking for the sustainability of insulation,one has to look beyond the factory gates. How the product performs in the built environment,how much product is needed to achieve comparable energy savings and what other savings can be achieved by saving space and weight should all be taken into account. HOWTO INFORM PROFESSIONALS? AND CONSUMERS? BEYOND FACTORY GATES WHEN TAKING ALL FACTORS INTO ACCOUNT, THE IMPACT OF PU INSULATION IS ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND Different materials have different thermal insulation capacities,densities and installation requirements. PU mayhave a higher impact at product level but reduces ancillarymaterial use and has a similar impact as natural insulants when assessed at the building (element) level.
