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

Stakeholders share their view on improving the indoor environment of energy efficient buildings, within the framework of the European projects OSIRYS and ECO-SEE

A stakeholder workshop on “Improving the indoor environment of energy efficient buildings” has been organized by the Division for Sustainable Construction of TECNALIA, on 17th September 2014. This event was designed in collaboration with two European projects: ECO-SEE and OSIRYS, focused on the same theme. The workshop welcomed 70 building and health practitioners from industry, policymakers as well as research and academia from all over Europe. Delegates were informed about the latest innovations and state of the art developments in eco-materials and products, as well as novel construction systems that improve indoor air quality in energy-efficient buildings across the EU.

The sessions were divided into two blocks. The first session, led by the ECO-SEE Project Coordinator, Prof. Peter Walker from the University of Bath, presented on developments of photocatalytic products and their contribution in improving indoor air quality and application to eco-innovative and energy-efficient panels. The second session, led by the OSIRYS Project Coordinator, Dr. Miriam Garcia from TECNALIA, focused on building systems that incorporate eco-solutions.

The workshop concluded with a networking session among members of both projects and businesses with a double objective: to meet the concerns of the attending companies and collect their views on the progress reported.
