Workshop ISOBIO

"Science and technology solutions for bio-based insulation"

  1. Summary
  2. Background information


The workshop, hosted by the University of Bath, will bring together the academic and research community, and will focus on the theme of ‘science and technology’ in bio-based insulation. The project partners will share their experiences, present the project’s approach and the first year’s results, as well as discuss and gather feedback on the innovative products under development.

Background information

The ISOBIO project aims to develop new bio-based insulation panels and renders and bring them into mainstream use to create more energy efficient buildings. The aim is to deliver products with at least a 50% reduction in embodied energy and CO₂ emissions at component level, a 20% improvement in insulation properties, and a 30% reduction in life cycle costs.
