ISOBIO

Project Description

The ISOBIO project is developing a new approach to insulation materials by combining existing low embodied energy bio-derived aggregates with innovative binders and surface treatments. These novel composites will have lower embodied energy than traditional insulation and will take advantage of the natural moisture release characteristics of the aggregates, resulting in improved indoor air quality.
