Sustainable insulation material for post insulation of buildings

The project deals with the development of new sustainable insulation material for the post insulation of buildings primarily from the 1960s’ and 1970s’ (“miljonprogrammet”). A proof-of-concept has already been conducted and within the time frame of this project, this concept will be further developed, optimized and evaluated. A lot of effort will be put at scale-up from lab to demo and the project aims at testing the new insulation material on a model house where the savings in terms of energy can be calculated. A recycling aspect and the following LCA will also be included during the project time.


Nouryon Pulp and Performance Chemicals AB, HIPOR Materials AB, Luleå tekniska universitet, LindePac AB and MoRe Research AB (a part of RISE).

Budget & time plan

The project’s budget is 8 929 000 SEK and the project runs between June 2020 and June 2022.
