Introducing the Polyurethanes Passive House project

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.
