This study reports on the performance of sustainable materials produced from natural resources as hemp-concrete or from recycled-waste non-biodegradable materials including Recycled PolyEthylene Terephthalate (R-PET). Three façades employing three different materials (Hemp-concrete, hemp-concrete with brick and R-PET) were investigated in three cities in France (Nancy and Carpentras) and Italy (Perugia) with different climate. The energy performance of each façade was assessed in terms of cooling and heating demands, electrical consumption for a constant flow rate ventilation mode, considering different orientations. The study also shows the effect of window size (10%, 25%, and 40%) on the annual energy consumption.

Abstract

This study reports on the performance of sustainable materials produced from natural resources as hemp-concrete or from recycled-waste non-biodegradable materials including Recycled PolyEthylene Terephthalate (R-PET). Three façades employing three different materials (Hemp-concrete, hemp-concrete with brick and R-PET) were investigated in three cities in France (Nancy and Carpentras) and Italy (Perugia) with different climate. The energy performance of each façade was assessed in terms of cooling and heating demands, electrical consumption for a constant flow rate ventilation mode, considering different orientations. The study also shows the effect of window size (10%, 25%, and 40%) on the annual energy consumption.
