Phase I: Innovation and commercialisation of homegrown wood fibre insulation

  A project that seeks to outline the innovation and commercial use of natural fibre insulation products in the UK. It will be based on a gap analysis of products that are currently available from natural fibre materials but are non-UK produced. Additionally the project will investigate the potential of such products to the UK construction industry to reduce operational and embodied carbon. Innovation in the use of such products will be the driving factor both in the new build and retrofit markets.
