The objectives of the project are:
  • to develop a high performance wood-based cellulosic thermal insulation panel material manufactured by foam forming to replace the oil-based insulation materials
  • to investigate and explore the possibilities to create a new bio-based cellulosic in-situ spray-on thermal insulation foam based on (nano)cellulose to replace traditional spray-on plastics insulation foams 
  • to evaluate the applicability of the new materials on buildings and benchmark them to conventional building insulation products including life cycle assessment LCA 
  • to find structural solutions and/or safe additives for improved material performance (e.g. fire performance) 
  • to evaluate the acceptance of markets and end users for new materials
