We care for the environment

Currently the construction sector is responsible for the consumption of 40% of the energy produced worldwide.

However, the materials used in the building with Baupanel System, their main component is expanded polystyrene (EPS), an efficient and effective thermal insulation material that plays an important role in reducing CO2 emissions2 into the atmosphere, making a very positive contribution to reducing global warming. In the production of EPS, CFCs or HCFCs are not used as foaming agents, so its manufacture does not cause any damage to the ozone layer.

During the useful life of a building built with the Baupanel System, the need for external energy input is significantly reduced, consequently achieving lower consumption of fossil fuels, which in turn leads to lower CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

Sustainable construction with Baupanel

For the purposes of the Building Energy Certification, Baupanel System It is an efficient construction system that allows reaching the maximum energy rating [class A] at an affordable price. This is due to its enormous thermal insulation, which constitutes an added value for both developers and end users of the buildings, who will see their energy consumption bills for air conditioning reduced.

Properties of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)

There is an unsubstantiated false accusation about the environmental impact of EPS that has contributed to a misperception of the real environmental impact caused by this material.

In the manufacture of expanded polystyrene, CFC-type gases are NOT used, responsible for the destruction of the Ozone layer, like some plastic materials.

On the contrary, we must evaluate the environmental impact associated with the use of EPS as thermal insulation, which provides energy savings, therefore contributing to the sustainability of the new era of construction. Furthermore, EPS is fully recyclable.

EPS Baupanel cut panels
  • Expanded polystyrene is a biologically inert, non-toxic and stable material.
  • It does not contribute to the formation of methane gas nor does it contribute any other type of potential greenhouse gases. In addition, their residues do not pose any risk of contamination to groundwater.
  • Expanded polystyrene is 100% RECYCLABLE. During the production of Baupanel panels for construction, practically no EPS waste is produced since the little waste resulting from the cutting of blocks is recycled directly in the same production plant.
  • El poliestireno expandido utilizado para los paneles de Baupanel System es de Clase III, de tipo E auto extinguible que no propaga llamas.
