[Video] SB&WRC: global presentation of the project

 SB&WRC  INTEREG  biobased materials  prototypes
Published by La rédaction C21

The SB&WRC project is part of the Programme Interreg VA France (Channel) England and benefits from financial support from the ERDF.

Interreg SB&WRC



This project, designed and led by Nomadeis, a sustainable development consultancy, aims to design and produce 3 prototypes of thermal insulation for buildings from bio and waste based raw materials. 

These 3 prototypes will be made from agricultural co-products (corn marrow and wheat straw) and textile waste (polyester from used bedding). Their carbon footprint will be at least 25% lower than standard insulation products (neither biobased nor recycled materials) on the market (like rock wool and glass wool). 

The project also aims to raise awareness among English and French building professionals of the advantages of these materials.

Height partners are involved in this European project: 3 in England (ASBP, University of Bath, University of Brighton) and 5 in France (Nomadéis, Construction21, ESITC Caen, UniLaSalle Rouen, and Veolia).
