Sustainability

Now installing the FUTURE 

INSULATION PAYS OFF – AND SUSTAINABLE INSULATION PAYS OFF EVEN MORE

The use of high-quality raw materials makes fungicides, algicides, pesticides, fire-protection agents, and binders totally unnecessary – which is a big plus because these substances are often toxic.

CALOSTAT® also impresses by its sustainability. The award of the Material Health Certificate at the Platinum level for both internal and external application testifies to the safety of CALOSTAT® for people and the environment.

Builders also benefit financially by using CALOSTAT®. Insulation that is up to 50 percent slimmer avoids the use of additional building materials in construction. This results in direct savings and also helps the environment: Materials that are not used need not be produced or transported.

Buildings eventually reach an age at which they must be either restored or demolished. If, after a long life, they are available to subsequent generations as a raw-material source they are doubly useful. CALOSTAT® contributes toward this: After many years of use, the long-lived high-performance insulation material is easily recycled.

CALOSTAT® is the only superinsulation material to be Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Gold. This enables builders to improve their scores in the assessment of their building projects for DGNB, LEED, or BREEAM certification.

Detailed information can also be found in the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) from Evonik for CALOSTAT®. The EPD also contains a calculated recycling scenario.

CALOSTAT® for the LEED certification

CALOSTAT® contributes towards sustainable construction. The LEED certification system objectively describes and evaluates the sustainability of buildings. In this brochure, we investigate the assessment criteria that are relevant for CALOSTAT® and describe the relevant properties of the high-performance insulation. This gives you a direct overview and specific details about how CALOSTAT® has a positive effect on a building’s environmental impact.

CALOSTAT® for the BREEAM certification

CALOSTAT® contributes towards sustainable construction. The BREEAM certification system objectively describes and evaluates the sustainability of buildings. In this brochure, we investigate the assessment criteria that are relevant for CALOSTAT® and describe the relevant properties of the high-performance insulation. This gives you a direct overview and specific details about how CALOSTAT® has a positive effect on a building’s environmental impact. 

Investigation on for the long-term performance of hydrophobic silica-based advanced porous materials in building applications

The first step of the presented study was to show the long-term stability of hydrophobic powders to investigate and evaluate afterwards the long-term stability of the hydrophobized mold bodies.
