Forest based composites for façades and interior partitions to improve indoor air quality in new builds and restoration

Presentation of the Tartu Demo Building

Indoor air quality and emissions from building materials have been, over recent decades, a major challenge for scientists, industry and consumers as traditional construction materials contribute to contaminants.

The Osirys project has been developing technology to improve indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency by evolving forest-based biocomposites and products for façades and interior partitions. These new technologies can then be applied in retrofitting and new building construction.

At 14:00 on 31st May 2017, the Osirys consortium will be holding an impact workshop to present one of its demonstration buildings at Tartu, Estonia.

The workshop is free-to-attend, but places are limited. Contact: Kaspar Alev, Tartu Town Hall at kaspar.alev@raad.tartu.ee or +372 73 61 294 for details.
