Pathways to sustainable construction. Experiences and prospective European research strategies
The aim of this study is to investigate the international research context of the programme "Building of Tomorrow" (with a focus on central, eastern and southern European countries) and to identify co-operation potentials.
Developing of a cost-efficient, energy-optimized window, built of wood and ecological insulating materials
Development of a sustainable windowconstruction using solar energy and ecogical materials.
COOLSAN - refrigeration concepts for office and administrative buildings retrofit
Technologies to enhance comfort and minimise energy requirements for air conditioning in existing office and administrative buildings. Possibilities to reduce the cooling loads and strategies for the use of passive cooling systems.
Science documentary "Building of Tomorrow" for television
The documentary film for ORF/ 3sat and Bayern alpha-TV presents the concept of the passive house. Fascinating pioneer projects of the Austrian Program on Technologies for Sustainable Development, Sub-Program "Building of Tomorrow", have been filmed over several months. The importance of taking care of ecology and sustainability when constructing houses is demonstrated to a large audience.
Information point for renewable and ecological materials (II) online information plus service offer
Development and maintainance of the internet platform for building materials made of renewable resources at www.nawaro.com, which serves the central information-point for important stake holders - private house builders, architects, master-builders and experts in the field of building laws.
Investigations on the Fundamental Suitability of Sprayed-on and Plaster-covered hygrothermic active Cellulose-Compact-Soundabsorber
Development of a new kind of spray-on and plastered noise absorber on the basis of cellulose from recycled paper. The absorber system preferably attenuates the low-frequency range, that can usually only be controlled with rather complex systems, and can also be used where conventional absorbers could cause problems due to impermissible water vapour condensation.
