Abstract [en]

The surge towards a sustainable future in the construction industry requires the use of bio-based insulation materials as an alternative to conventional ones for improving energy efficiency in structures. In this article, the features of bio-based insulation materials, including their thermal conductivities, moisture buffering value, fire performance, and life cycle evaluations are examined. It is clear from the review that pre- and post-treatment of the bio-based materials used for insulation materials optimize their properties. The life cycle analysis reveals a significant reduction in global warming potential (GWP) compared to conventional foams. In addition, it is envisaged that producing bio-based insulation materials on a larger scale will further decrease the net GWP. The article, therefore, proposes the implementation of policies that will promote the commercialization of bio-based insulation materials.
