The project is on developing a multifunctional Phase Change Materials modified porous cementitious nanocomposite (PoroPCM) that can be used for storing large amounts of heat energy in the insulation layer of buildings is the main aim of joint synergetic Japan-EU consortium. With this project, partners have the ambition to develop an innovative functional material that combines high conductivity, high insulation capabilities, and high storage capacities within one highly porous cementitious system. The proposed smart technology will encompass a multiscale experimental and numerical approach, which covers advanced nanotechnology-based solutions to a full-scale demonstration project. The consortium partners, consisting of excellent universities, research institutes and ambitious SME companies, have the strong ambition to build this new technology in a joint international framework while supporting sustainable and multilateral research cooperation and promoting transnational mobilities between Japan and the European partners through:
Joint development of the PoroPCM solution with all consortium partners;
Joint research and workshops in both Japan and EU;
Full-scale demonstration of the PoroPCM product by monitoring its’ thermal performance.
Consortium partners are:
Prof. Tsuchiya, National Institute of Material Science (NIMS), Tsukuba, Japan; Prof. Imamoto, Tokyo University of Science (TUS), Tokyo, Japan; Dr. Dolado, Spanish National Research Council-Centre for Materials Physics (CSIC), Spain; GrapheneTech (GT, company), Spain; Dr. Pukl, Červenka Consulting (ČC, company), Czech; MSc. Röser, Röser Ingenieurbeton (RIB, company), Germany.
