Energy Efficiency in buildings & Insulation


ENERGY LOSSES IN BUILDINGS Environmental damage from high energy consumption

‌ we have to search for energy efficient & cost saving solutions


WHY ENERGY EFFICIENCY? Energy efficiency has gained more and more importance because climate change is one of the most important global problems in the 21st century. Our environment is damaged by the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2. In order to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere, energy efficiency has to be increased.

Given that it is necessary to use energy and that renewable energy sources by far cannot cover the global and ever increasing demand, the only alternative is to use energy as efficiently as possible.


According to the Energy Information Administration, after China and USA, among major polluters only India is expected to have significant growth of emissions over the next 20 years


Sources of CO2 Emissions in the EU The single largest source of emissions is from the energy used for buildings – in particular space heating.


WHY ENERGY EFFICIENCY in BUILDINGS? Analyzing the different sectors which are responsible for the emission of CO2, it becomes clear that

The largest source of emissions stems from energy used in buildings, in particular space heating In general, consumption in buildings accounts for some 41% of the energy used in the EU. In contrast, both transport and industry for some 30 %, respectively. Households are responsible for one quarter of CO2 emissions in the EU.

There are studies indicating that the most cost effective measures available are energy efficiency measures in buildings.


WHY INSULATION? There are different alternatives to improve energy efficiency in buildings, e.g. the promotion of electricity generated from renewable resources, usage of low energy light bulbs etc. and finally the usage of much more insulation in buildings. Within all these alternatives, Insulation is the most energy efficient and, at the same time, the most cost effective way of achieving energy savings objectives. Improved thermal insulation of buildings (old and newer) will give immediate and long lasting results in terms of reduced energy consumption and hence CO2 emissions ‌ BETTER INSULATION WARMS THE HOME, NOT THE PLANET!


WHY FIBRANx ps and FIBRANgeo STONE WOOL? There are different materials that can be used for insulating buildings. Stone wool is used in a wide range of applications that harness its impressive thermal and acoustic insulation properties, as well as providing fire protection. By volume, the largest market segment for stone wool is in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Extruded polystyrene, on the other hand is a high quality insulation material that exclusively fulfills all the specific physical characteristics required to efficiently insulate and thermally protect buildings from extreme temperatures and moisture.

Bottlenecks ‌in following areas:

1. Quality of trade- and transport-related railway infrastructure & problems related to Greek ports’ operational services 2. Ease of arranging competitively priced loadings (Trucks scarcity) 3. Ability to track and trace consignments


Bottleneck -1In quality of trade- and transport-related infrastructure (railroads) & problems in Greek ports and road transport

1.Lacking quantity and performance of public infrastructure in railways

2. Customs and port strikes by two umbrella federations representing public and private sector in the frame of a general political, financial and social turbulence in Greece resulting to delay in deliveries, congestion surcharges, dissatisfaction of customers, and shrinking market share & turnover


Logistics Performance Index (LPI) I nfrastructure


Bottleneck -2In ease of arranging competitively priced loadings (Scarcity of available trucks in ROAD transport)

1.Sharply declining volume from imports from Italy, our main export market due to current financial crisis & scarcity of trucks 2. We pay a freight premium to cover returning empty trucks 3. Seasonality 4. Reduction or shortage of permissions for Turkish truck drivers to enter our boarders, thus leading to limited number of trucks available for export


Logistics Performance Index (LPI)

Ease of arranging com petitively priced shipm ents


Bottleneck -3In ability to track & trace consignments

In road transport (majority of our sales carried out by truck) 1) No real time information 2) Lack of visibility of truck fleet 3) Delay in delivery 4) Paper based system 5) Historical searches are time consuming 6) Administration costs are high 7) Declining customer satisfaction leading to reduced sales
