FoAM-BUILD: Products Developed
The partners of FoAM-BUILD concluded the project last week with a final review meeting.
The sixth and final edition of FoAM-BUILD’s newsletter. This newsletter discusses the benefits produced by the project, and the consortium of partners who came together to make this a reality. Plus: latest news and an insight into some of the products developed within the project!
Along with the other benefits of FoAM-BUILD’s ETICS, the project boasts some incredible figures that positively impact on the environment. These figures have been turned into an infographic to give you a better insight into the impacts that the ETICS has, with potential emissions saved on using FoAM-BUILD ETCS compared to using current standard ETICS that are available on the market.
As can be seen by the infographic, just one multi-family house with FoAM-BUILD installed has incredible benefits on the environment. FoAM-BUILD has created products that can not only benefit the construction process in various different stages of building, but also on the environment based upon where in Europe they may be installed.

FoAM-BUILD Environmental Benefits
FoAM-BUILD has released five short interview videos on its official YouTube channel.
The partners of FoAM-BUILD who attended the Steering Committee on 29th June put their knowledge of the FoAM-BUILD project together to film short interviews. These interviews are an incite into the benefits, purpose and the developments of the different aspects of the project, from the new nozzle and mortar products developed for the purpose of FoAM-BUILD and the impact that FoAM-BUILD has on the environment in European countries.

Smithers Rapra joined partners in Ober-Ramdstadt, Germany for a Steering Committee (SC) meeting. The main purpose of this meeting was to inform the other work package leaders attending on each work package’s developments since the last meeting, and also plans for the next three months. These work packages were discussed in length, covering the issues facing each deliverable, as well as the next steps to finish them.
In the SC meeting, various aspects of the project were discussed including safety tests that have been conducted for FoAM-BUILD.
Partners from the consortium of FoAM-BUILD attended, including DAW SE, Fraunhofer ICT, TBC, Norner, Ateknea Solutions and Smithers Rapra.
Once the meeting had come to a close, Smithers Rapra conducted interviews with some of the project partners discussing the benefits of FoAM-BUILD from the foams to the ventilation system.
The joint British Plastics Federation and Plastics Europe event held at the BPF house in London provided attendees with a complete examination of the circular economy. The Seminar consisted of information on the current state of plastics within the circular economy and also provided an in depth look into the automotive and packaging industry.
Key note speakers included representatives from JLR and P&G which gave an in depth look at the future of plastic recycling within their respective industries.
The seminar also consisted of a panel debate, which highlighted proposed future approaches to the circular economy.
The event was important for FoAM-BUILD as the project has been examining holistic end-of-life scenarios, as well as potential end users and end markets for the material streams that could be recovered. The results of which will highlighted in the upcoming FoAM-BUILD LCA Handbook.
Partners from the FoAM-BUILD consortium attended a General Assembly meeting on 30th March 2017 in Delft.
Held at NEN, this meeting allowed consortium partners to present work carried out during the past six months and outline future work planned.
