This new aerogel-based superinsulating material (SICLA) under the paradigms of circular economy, which will revolutionize the construction sector

This alliance between the French SME KEEY AEROGEL and TECNALIA has resulted in the development of the technology to be able to manufacture this type of material but based on a sustainable and innovative production process and starting from a raw material of very low cost that includes material recycled with high silica content.

The beneficiaries of this new technology will be the oil / gas sector, manufacturers of heat equipment, manufacturers of thermal and acoustic insulation products and manufacturers of construction products, among others, who will significantly reduce energy consumption and will achieve greater use of resources.

Silica aerogels with hydrophobic inner surfaces are especially interesting for thermal insulation since thermal conductivities up to 0.012 W/(m K) can be achieved (being the lowest thermal conductivity known for solids at ambient conditions).
Our novel manufacturing process intends to create a breakthrough in the energy efficient building insulation market through developing low-cost aerogels superinsulation products while contributing to opening new closed loop circular economy paradigms. The KEEY and TECNALIA´s joint aerogel manufacturing technology guarantees at least 40% cost reduction for the aerogel production process.
