Osirys project: forest based composites for façades to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration
The FP7 project Osirys has developed a serious of technologies to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration. The most promising prototypes are available in EffiBUILDING such as:
Bio resins cladding panels: Pultruded profiles and infused cladding panels based on bio resins and reinforcement made of fused natural and glass fibres.
Exterior Cladding System: the external cladding system is designed to provide a skin or layer intended to control the infiltration of weather elements and also for aesthetic purposes.
Fibrous foams: Porous wood fibre webs with varied densities are manufactured by the foam-laid forming technology.
Bio-Polymer foaming: Extrusion foamed bio-based thermoplastics are being developed in Osyris project as a core for an internal insulation board.
More information about these innovative solutions are available in the database.
