In order to jointly promote, develop and adopt external thermal insulation and composite systems (ETICS) solutions technology in construction of highly energy efficient green buildings, NBCC (India) Limited and Bolix, SA of Poland have inked a memorandum of business exploration (MoBE).
 
ETICS technology is a robust and long lasting building energy performance solution developed to current standards over the last 40 years. It is highly cost effective, safe for inhabitants living in insulated houses and hugely beneficial for the environment.
 
The technology is already being used in a big way in European countries. Many of the offices, hospitals, hotels and schools built in these countries have significantly contributed in reducing energy consumption and carbon emission by using this technology.
 
It conforms to a set of globally acknowledged standards which also take into account the procedures and installation techniques related with application. These standards were historically established in Europe and now being emulated in other parts of the globe.
 
The system contains components including basic insulation material, layers of adhesive, mechanical fasteners, a reinforced layer with fibre glass mesh, reinforcements and accessories, primers and plasters. Addition of the system to the wall of a structure can reduce electricity usage needed for cooling/heating the buildings’ interior.
 
The agreement between NBCC and Bolix shall facilitate import of this technology and its application in India and its neighbouring countries through NBCC.
