Financed by the ERDF through the territorial cooperation program Interreg France (Channel) England, the SB&WRC (Sustainable Bio&Waste Resources for Construction) project’s main aim is to conceive and produce three innovative, low-carbon, bio and waste based thermal insulants. The resources that were chosen for this project are:
Technical experiments are currently being undertaken (see the articles from ESITC Caen and UniLaSalle) that will notably determine the thermal properties (thermal conductivity and transmittance) of the prototypes. In the meanwhile, the project partners are keen to prepare the next step: the transition to an industrial scale manufacturing and distribution on the market of the prototypes.
To achieve this, the project partners decided to operate in the following manner:
From the onset, the partners have believed in the potential of the insulation materials developed within the framework of the SB&WRC project. Thus, to encourage manufacturers to join in this venture, the partner have entrusted Nomadéis to develop a strategy that would help interested parties to mass produce and distribute the prototypes. This commercial strategy will notably contain:
In the end, this report will allow decision makers and company representatives to transform the prototypes developed by the SB&WRC project partners into commercially viable construction and renovation products.
In order to feed into the partners’ ongoing reflection on the improvement of the prototype, both qualitative and quantitative feedbacks from stakeholders of the building industry are essential. We had launched, in October 2018, on this very platform a consultation which aims to:
If you are a stakeholder within the building industry, the SB&WRC partners are keen to hear from you. If you would like to participate in our survey, in English, please follow this link to the survey.
The questionnaire is strictly confidential, and your answers will remain anonymous. However, if you so wish, you may leave your email address at the end of the survey to be kept informed of its results.
