The research plan is composed by main tasks:
1. State-of-the-art update
2. Development of new thermal insulation composites
3. Performance evaluation of the new composites
4. Development and performance evaluation of LSF elements
5. Life cycle assessment
Task 1 aims to keep the team updated regarding the research topics addressed in this project, given the frequent new advances achieved. Task 2 intend to develop a new eco-friendly and cost-effective insulation composite material, being this the most important task and therefore a very significant share of human and monetary resources was assigned to it. Task 3 purpose the characterization of the previously developed composite materials in order to evaluate its performance. Task 4 aims to evaluate the thermal and acoustic performance and optimize the use of the material in LSF walls in order take maximum advantage of it. Task 5 intend to perform a life cycle evaluation of the new insulation material in terms of environmental impacts and costs. Task 6 involves the dissemination of the research project achievements using a webpage and organizing a technical workshop.
