Buildings & houses are responsible of the major part of all fossil Carbon Emissions and according to the EU Comission Directives, it is our responsibility to reduce the energy consumption to fight Climate Change. To contribute to this common objective, INDRESMAT is developing 2 highly potential projects involving disruptive innovations while promoting a resource-efficient, circular & low carbon economy.
Polyurethane (PUR) is a co-polymer made of 2 different basic units (polyols and polyisocyanates) with multiple available combinations, making PUR a highly customizable material with a broad range of properties. This is the most versatile polymer with a great potential to be implemented in the construction market as structural and functional plastic.
PUR it's a well-known material due to its excellent thermal, mechanical and chemical properties with one of the highest thermal and acoustic insulating capacities. Moreover, PUR shows one of the highest potential biobased content (up to 90%) with the largest production capacity of all bio-based plastics (>2.000 Mtons/y).
