Healthy and energy efficient buildings: the potential of ECO-SEE materials

With energy efficiency in buildings high up on the European political agenda, Brussels is certainly the place where awareness about the importance of energy performant buildings is prominent. But less people might be aware of how much indoor air quality needs to be improved. Indoor air is 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoors, because of mould and bacteria resulting from excessive levels of humidity, and pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released by furniture, cleaning products and textiles.

The EU-funded ECO-SEE project has developed eco-materials for buildings and shown concrete results.

ECTP made a presentation 'What place for eco-materials and bio-based solutions in EU research policies?' during the final project workshop 90% Indoor: solutions for healthy and energy efficient buildings on 29 June 2017.
