Innovative precast concrete components for energy-efficient building

Thermal activation inside and outside –

Ensuring a reliable, economical, and environmentally compatible energy supply is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. Apart from more intensive use of regenerative energy, more efficient use of energy is likewise essential – since it results in reduction of consumption of fossil energy resources as well as of emissions of climate-damaging carbon-dioxide. Resolutions of the German Federal Government of 28 September 2010 call for a 20 % reduction until 2020 in the levels of building heat requirements as they prevailed in Germany in 2008. A further objective is lowering primary...
