M37 meeting of the GREEN INSTRUCT project held in Naples


The GREEN INSTRUCT Project Consortium celebrated its M37 meeting, last 22nd and 23rd October, hosted by STRESS, in Naples and the nearby city of Benevento. Representatives from all partners of the consortium attended, with Juanan Alduncin representing CIDETEC.

The activities done by the different working groups were reviewed in the work sessions held at Naples. A new demonstrator of the internal building panel developed in the Project was recently installed in the experimental site owned by STRESS in BENEVENTO, where all members of the consortium moved after the technical meeting, to pay a visit. The demonstrator is intended to be monitorized  for eight months, in order to evaluate their performance against a conventional wall.

The main goal of GREEN INSTRUCT is the design and development of a prefabricated modular structural building block, with reduced weight, improved acoustic and thermal performance and multiple functionalities, These properties will make it superior to conventional precast reinforced concrete. It also takes advantage of the re-use of materials coming from the construction or demolition wastes.

In the frame of the project, CIDETEC addresses the development of the thermal and acoustic insulating elements, based on polyurethane foams.
