  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.

  • Natural Foam Blowing Agents: Sustainable Ozone- and Climate-Friendly Alternatives to HCFCs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    GIZ (former GTZ) Proklima has compiled this publication to provide information on natural foam blowing agents as ozone- and climate-friendly alternatives to HCFCs.
