Abstract
How will future developments in insulation affect current construction standards? Will it help to facilitate better construction solutions and slimmed-down designs? What price is reasonable for new insulation materials and what can be achieved with some of the newest features?
With today's focus on environmental protection and improving environmental standards, energy efficiency in buildings has becoming increasingly important.
Energy requirements for buildings have become increasingly demanding in recent years, which has led to a higher standard of construction with more efficient and tighter building envelopes. Construction constitutes 10-40 percent of current Greenhouse Gas emissions, which has attracted the attention of various... (More)
How will future developments in insulation affect current construction standards? Will it help to facilitate better construction solutions and slimmed-down designs? What price is reasonable for new insulation materials and what can be achieved with some of the newest features?
With today's focus on environmental protection and improving environmental standards, energy efficiency in buildings has becoming increasingly important.
Energy requirements for buildings have become increasingly demanding in recent years, which has led to a higher standard of construction with more efficient and tighter building envelopes. Construction constitutes 10-40 percent of current Greenhouse Gas emissions, which has attracted the attention of various construction companies. These companies have initiated internal projects to work towards a greener business. These developments require a fundamental change in
the Swedish construction industry.
With all these new demands, today's standards are becoming out-of-date. For sustainable development it is necessary to replace or supplement the current standard with new and better materials. Our report is a comparison between one of today's most common insulation materials, mineral wool, against one of the future potential insulation materials, vacuum insulation. Calculations, surveys, etc. support us to find answers to the questions. (Less)
