Dünnschichtiger Hochleistungswärmedämmputz aus nachhaltig angebauten nachwachsenden Rohstoffen

(high insulation materials from renewable resources)

Germany is redefining its energy supply as part of the much-discussed energy demand. The targets by 2050 are to halve the primary energy consumption by improved energy efficiency and increasing of renewable energies in gross energy consumption up to 60%. As early as October 2013, the Federal Government once again considerably tightened the energy-saving regulation for buildings. In the future, buildings will have to deal with less energy than before. Well thought-out insulation is therefore essential. As a rule, insulation materials based on petrochemical plastics are produced. However, they are not environmentally friendly, can be flame-retarded in combination with flame retardants and have to be elaborately processed or are not sustainable. Therefore, the aim of the project, sponsored by the BMWi within the framework of the EnOB research initiative, is to develop applied scientific knowledge on the use of the air pore structure space in sustainably grown renewable resources for the production of single-layer or two-layer high-performance insulation plasters. As a very promising group of perennial renewable raw materials with very good heat-insulating properties, fast growing large-sized plants and especially Miscanthus, a plant with very large pore volume, are to be used. In addition to Miscanthus, other perennial cultures show similar characteristics. This results in the selection of cultures rich in parenchyma as well as lignin, such as Miscanthus x giganteus, Silphium perfoliatum and Helianthus tuberosus. The morphological differences of the multi-year renewable raw materials selected here require detailed studies on the suitability as filler fiber pellets.
