Other AMANAC projects

Other projects within the Nano-E2B-Cluster which are developing related technology include:

ADAPTIWALL - Multi-functional light-weight wall panel based on ADAPTIVE Insulation and nanomaterials for energy efficient buildings


The ambition of the ADAPTIWALL project is to reduce heating and cooling demands by more than 50% compared to current retrofittting solutions. To reach this ambition, the chosen principle is to use an adaptive insulation to regulate incoming heat or cold and to temporarily store this outdoor heat (or cold) in a lightweight concrete buffer until it is needed indoor for heating or cooling purpose. Furthermore, a drastic reduction in auxiliary heat recovery and ventilation installations is foreseen by including a total heat exchanger system within the wall.


BioBuild - Biocomposites for high-performance, low environmental impact, economical  building products


The aim of BioBuild is to use biocomposite materials to bring about a step-change in the reduction of embodied energy in building-façade and internal-partition systems, whilst being commercially competitive and, of course, delivering state-of-the-art-performance.

ELISSA - Energy Efficient Lightweight-Sustainable-Safe-Steel Construction


The ELISSA consortium implements commercial or close to the market nanomaterials (aerogels, VIPs, MMTs, CNT) and MEMs, "tunes" their properties and method of application in order to induce improved thermal, structural/vibration/seismic and fire performance to multi-functional light-weight steel/dry wall prefabricated systems.


FoamBuild - Functional Adaptive Nano-Materials and Technologies for Energy Efficient Buildings  


FoamBuild will develop next generation External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (ETICS) for new builds and retrofitting applications.It is focused on two main areas: Active monitoring and control of moisture and the development of a nano-celullar foam insulation material.


SESBE - Smart Elements for Sustainable Building Envelopes


The SESBE consortium will provide new solutions for lightweight, energy efficient and safe façade elements. For the first time nanomaterials and nanotechnology are suggested for this type of application. It will be used as a tool to custom design functional and performance properties of façade sandwich elements for new constructions and half elements for refurbishment of existing buildings. Furthermore the development of a new type of sealing tape and intumescent coating for fire protection are parts of the project.
