About usThis is a blog about polyurethanes and what it enables, so don’t be surprised if we have opinions on green roofs, comfort or energy efficiency.
It is run by ISOPA, the association representing European producers of the two building blocks for polyurethanes.

A while ago we decided to build a passive house to illustrate what we have been saying about polyurethanes for years: it is sustainable, comfortable and versatile. We therefore had the idea to build a house according to one of the most efficient construction standards, the passive house standard. But we wanted to do so using polyurethane materials wherever we could. Today we are pleased to launch the project and the website www.polyurethanes.org/passivehouse, where you will be able to follow the construction process step by step.
Who said insulation wasn’t a sexy topic? - To be honest, pretty much everyone! And this is despite the obvious benefits of good insulation: it saves money, it is good for the environment and it is not rocket science. Polyurethanes are among the best-performing insulation materials, so we are fairly used to hammering these arguments at Polyurethanes. But in order to convince, Friends of the Earth UK ( FoE UK ) decided on a new approach; Inspired by US President Barack Obama’s most famous statement on energy efficiency “insulation is sexy stuff” (Watch it here), they recently released a must-see video illustrating the quote.
