The search for the most environmentally-friendly insulation material (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här artikeln syftar till att jämföra fyra värmeisoleringsmaterial ur miljösynpunkt. Materialen som jämförs är styrencellplast, stenull, glasull och cellulosaisolering. Frågeställningen som ska besvaras är ”Vilket är det miljövänligaste värmeisoleringsmaterialet?”. Underlag har samlats in genom att studera byggvarudeklarationer och bedömningar från olika miljöbedömningsverktyg. Miljöaspekterna som undersöks är energiåtgång vid tillverkning, utsläpp vid tillverkning, om materialet innehåller några miljöfarliga ämnen och hur materialåtervinningen ser ut.

Resultatet visar att cellulosaisolering är överlägset bäst sett till miljöpåverkan. I diskussionen tas funderingar upp kring varför cellulosaisolering används i så liten utsträckning i Sverige idag. 

Arbetet innehåller utöver denna vetenskapliga artikel en del som innefattar projekterande av ett småhus.

Abstract [en]

This article is comparing four heat isolation materials from an environmental aspect. The materials that are compared are expanded polystyrene, glass wool, stone wool and cellulose insulation. The formulated question is “Which is the most environmentally-friendly insulation material?”. At a basis for this comparison, data has been collected through studying declarations of the building materials and classifications of the materials using various environmental assessment tools. The environmental aspects that are evaluated are energy requirements in production, emissions in production, if the material contains substances that may have a negative effect on the environment and what the recycling process of each material constitutes.

The results showed that cellulose insulation was superior from an environmental angle. In the discussion, we elaborate on why the use of cellulose insulation is currently so limited in Sweden. 

This assignment also includes construction of a house.
