Energy technology is vital to a dynamic society but global warming,
driven primarily by CO2
emissions, now demands change in current patterns of generation and
use. Half of our energy is used in buildings, which form an excellent
focus for actions to reduce CO2 emissions,
starting with energy efficiency.
How can we make green buildings for the future?
In Europe, the largest share of energy in buildings is heating.
Insulation and thermal design can dramatically reduce heat loss and help
stop global warming. Heating energy demand in existing buildings can be
reduced by 30-50% through retrofit, compared to the current average. In
new buildings it can be reduced by 90-95%, using widely available
technology at competitive costs.
- Reduce the amount of natural resources buildings
- Reduce the amount of pollution emitted by
those same buildings.
Green buildings often include measures to reduce energy use. To increase
the efficiency of the building envelope, they may use high-efficiency
windows and insulation in walls, ceilings, and floors. Designers also
orient windows and walls and place awnings, porches, and trees to shade
windows and roofs during the summer while maximizing solar gain in the
winter. In addition, effective window placement (day lighting) can
provide more natural light and lessen the need for electric lighting
during the day. Solar water heating further reduces energy loads.
High performance green buildings share three main attributes: high
energy efficiency, low environmental impact and proper occupant health
and comfort. These are the fundamentals for both new and existing
The benefits of ISOPIPE include, in addition to reducing costs and
environmental impacts of energy consumption:
- Conserves Energy by Reducing Heat Loss or
- Controls Surface Temperatures for Personnel
Protection and Comfort
- Facilitates Process
- Prevents Condensation on Cold
- Prevents or Reduces Damage to Equipment
From Exposure to Fire or Corrosive
- Controls Noise
The real pay off comes when you consider ISOPIPE's environmental
- Low thermal conductivity for effective
energy saving and CO2
- Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP): NO
CFC's, HFC's or HCFC's!
- Zero Global Warming
How to conserve more than 80% of energy?
ISOPIPE is a highly durable insulation system. It is shown that it
offers improved environmental performance and advanced control of
buildings. ISOPIPE insulation systems are cost effective and energy
efficient; you save money by conserving more than 80% of energy.
A simple measure that directly impacts three attributes is proper
We use raw materials and energy with responsibility to reduce waste. In
addition, we meet industry standards by supplying information on the
proper use of all our products to ensure their highest performance.
How to keep people and environment safe?
Invest in the future! ISOPIPE is a healthy conscious choice. It allows
you to protect the buildings' occupants from mould and poor air quality.
So it's an investment that will deliver tremendous benefits.
Poor air quality in buildings can have harmful effects on human health
(the body's respiratory and cardiovascular systems) and the environment.
Our systems ensure improved air quality keeping people and the

As far as out TORRENT Boilers concerns; The efficiency improvements,
have been ongoing in the industry for some time, have helped offset
rising energy costs and reduce carbon-dioxide, carbonmonoxide,
nitrogen-oxide (NOx), and other emissions.
The further development of low NOx fuelburning equipment and emissions-
and system-control technologies is rapidly enhancing performance
capabilities. Advanced controls offer computerized combustion control,
high operating efficiency, building-information interconnection and data
transfer and trending.
A boiler's integration into other systems can allow a more optimized
operation, which can result in enhanced reliability and efficiency.
