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

Osirys Project Partners Present at ICAE 2015

Osirys project partners were amongst the 70 speakers covering an array of technology developments on Architectural Envelopes at ICAE 2015.

The VII International Congress of Architectural Envelopes (ICAE 2015) took place on the 27th – 29th May 2015 at Kursaal Congress Palace in Donostia, San Sebastian, Spain and was attended by over 300 participants.

The international congress takes place every three years for the purpose of industries involved in the development, characterisation and performance assessment of architectural envelopes. Feedback for the event has been extremely high, and the successful contribution of the project partners was well received.

Presentations by project partners included:

  • AIMPLAS- Graphene Nanoplatelets – Biocomposites for Advanced Pultrusion Profiles Adapted to Building Envelopes.
  • Fraunhofer FRH – Active Paints to Improve Indoor Air Quality.
  • TECNALIA- Environmental Assessment of Building Materials for Good Indoor Air Quality.
  • UNStudio – New Envelope Adaptations.
