Abstract

The research of new products derived from waste and from recycled materials is today ever more necessary in order to reduce consumption of natural raw materials and at the same time to recover and recycle waste from domestic or industrial origin. This approach is now very active in buildings and construction sector which appear active and open to different innovations. New products are developed such as in thermal and acoustic insulation with interesting applications in civil and industrial installations. In particular, this issue reports the results of tests and experiments conducted on panels for thermo acoustic insulation, which are produced with recycled synthetic high density fibers, rubber and other waste materials. The study aimed to validate quality and performance of insulation panels using, at different percent, finely ground rockwool waste, derived from the same thermo acoustic insulation industry, and fine rubber aggregate resulting from mechanical treatment of used tires. The final panels manufacturing is completed adding thermosetting polymers and salts necessary to give it fire retardant characteristics. Finally, a Life Cycle Assessment was applied in order to demonstrate environmental and economic sustainability in this kind of product as well as its technical efficiency.
