Brussels – ISOPA, the European diisocyanate and polyol producers' organisation, opened its Passive House in Evere, Brussels, on 11 December 2013, two years after the project was announced, the association said in a statement.
Isopa said that the project documents construction from floor to ceiling of a residential house, which uses polyurethane materials wherever possible, and provides a living example of the environmental and economic value polyurethane brings to the most modern construction standards, the passive house standard.
ISOPA Secretary General Jorg Palmersheim said, “the house not only demonstrates the many benefits of polyurethane insulation but acts as a symbol to urge all policymakers to take action. Energy efficient buildings must be made the standard; polyurethanes will play an important role in meeting this standard.
