Evaluation of innovative thermal insulation systems for a sustainable envelope
The paper presents the results of the research on thermal insulation systems for the building
casing. We present the results of computer simulations that have enabled us to verify and
optimize the transmission of heat through several innovative insulation systems, such as
vacuum solutions for transparent façades, or the possibilities offered by the recycling of waste
material of Opunthia Ficus Indica (prickly pear) pruning, which, properly treated, allowed to
obtain an insulating material (Patent n. 1402131), in the form of panels or bulk grains (thermal
coefficient values 0.0710.057
