Today, building insulation materials come mainly from non-renewable raw materials of mineral or petroleum origin and its extraction and processing cause significant environmental impacts, especially in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption. However, the physical characteristics of certain agricultural residues, such as corn and sunflower stalks, give them a very convenient and desired performance in terms of thermal insulation and water regulation for the formulation of construction materials. In addition, these bio-based raw materials have many environmental benefits: they are renewable, local, and are carbon sinks.
Thus, SAVASCO’s main objective would be to contribute to the development, in the cross-border territory, of an innovative and sustainable economic sector in the building sector.
