The INERTRANS Project, funded by ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche) and lead with academic and industrial partners allowed the development of a particularly innovative new insulation material. Composed of glass blocks filled with a Phase Change Material (PCM) and translucent aerogel (insulated material), this wall living combines several functions as:
- Thermal insulation and soundproofing,
- Gradual capture and restitution of solar energy,
The computerized simulations of two buildings with Low-Energy Building standard, one residential, the other one offices, was realized during the project. It shows that this "special wall" plays an important role during winter heating periods to reduce energy consumption by 50 to 90% depending on the weather and the area. This insulated material was patented at the end of the project. It has multiple potential applications for the High Energy Efficient Building whether for heating needs restriction or for limitation of air-conditioning demand depending on the PCM used.
In 2007, 3 300 m3 of AC.00 nodules (181 500 - 52 000 RTh) was installaed in the Putrajaya Piercing 1 building in Malaysia, thanks to our Malaysian partner and CRISTOPIA's support.
This District Cooling System supplies building needs of The First Ministry Palace in Malaysia.
This installation is composed of three 7,8 MW chillers operating with the STL - AC.00 - 3300.
This prestigious reference shows the interest and the customer confidence toward CRISTOPIA's technology in Malaysia.
