COOL-Coverings: a range of nanotech coatings to improve Near Infrared (NIR) reflective properties of buildings

The COOL-Coverings project addressed a range of insulation solutions based on nanotechnology coatings. These coatings aim at improving the Near Infrared (NIR) reflective properties of construction materials, thereby improving the energy efficiency in buildings. A set of new materials was developed to be implemented into several construction components. 

NanoPCM: High performance, low cost, nano-insulation foam with improved LCA

A high performance insulating foam has been developed for building applications by the NanoPCM project. The innovation lies in the encapsulation of Phase Change Materials (PCM) within a polymer matrix with addition of nano materials, the encapsulation being carried out via a zero-waste spray-drying process.
