Eden Lime Insulation was developed whilst looking at the insulation of an Eighteenth century house.

Eden Lime Insulation

It had little insulation, big problems with condensation and the owner was reluctant to tank it, seal it or inject it all of which would make it non breathable. The aim therefore was to insulate the property with a breathable material. Eden Lime looked at the products on the market at the time and it was felt that non of these matched the requirements of a fully breathable insulation material. Over a period of months Eden Lime undertook their own in house trials and product development to come up with a new solution. The final insulation product was sent as a test sample to The National Physical Laboratory in December 2010 for a thermal conductivity test.

Effesus – About Effesus

According to the European Recovery Plan one of the actions that needs to be taken to tackle the current crisis, is investing in energy efficiency. Historic urban buildings consume 4% of all energy and are responsible for 3% of CO2 emissions. Therefore, improving energy efficiency in historic buildings and historic districts is essential. Nevertheless, most of the current developments in energy efficiency address new construction without dealing with the unique problems of historic structures. About Passivhaus Trust.
