Concept and objectives:   Thermal insulation of construction and building elements has become the most important measure to enhance energy savings in new and existing building stock. Stricter regulations (such as 2019/2021 EU Buildings Directive) have led to the use of huge thicknesses of standard insulation, almost always EPS and XPS.   An efficient use of a porous cementitious system as a thermal insulation material depends mainly on its air content.
