The positive effect of earthen materials on the indoor environmental quality (IEQ) is unique. Earth plasters are able to regulate humidity levels and effectively absorb pollutants (VOC's) and odours. The material has been used in buildings such as hotels, offices, kindergartens, concert halls as well as the world's first zero-energy tower. The Austrian manufacturer EMOTON has organized a road show for architects, property developers and construction companies to discuss the functions of an interior plaster and the influence in the indoor climate. Andrea Klinge (Roswag Architekten) will present latest results from the H-House project and highlight the potential of aerogel modified earthen plasters and other natural building materials in light of innovative systems for internal partition walls.
