Single Family Homes and Densified Low-rise Housing - an Analysis of Motives

The study concentrates on describing the reasons behind the slow uptake of space-saving, densified forms of housing, and explains the dominant preference for detached single-family homes. However, it goes beyond simply describing the decisive motives for choices of housing. The study analyses the determining factors and the basic conditions under which these motives come or came into being. Based on this analysis, alternatives will be proposed and evaluated with regard to their effectiveness and feasibility.

Solar Adsorption cooling system of residential and office buildings (SunSorber)

In the on hand project an adsorber/desorber for a solar operated/district heating operated one-level adsorption chiller with water as cooling agent and silica gel as adsorbent agent will be planned for a low range of performance (2 to 50 kW refrigerating capacity). It will be implemented as a test-/pilot plant. Hence these two substances are an alternative to the HFCKW´s cooling agents that are used nowadays.

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.

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.
