Norner into EU project for energy efficient building
Norner will take part of the FoAMBUILD project (2013-2016).
The project funded by EU-FP7 will develop next generation External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) for new builds and retrofitting applications.
The main contribution of the institute is within WP1:Development of Insulation Material.
In this WP Norner will contribute in the development of a polystyrene based nanofoam involving the tailoring of the polymer structure, development of nucleation agents and an environmentally friendly fire retardant system free of bromine.
Norner responsible in the project: Dr. Carlos Barreto
