Dear members of the EIHA,
please find below a press release of our member “Austrian Hemp Association”.
Vienna, November 13, 2013 – Stay warm with hemp. The Austrian Climate Protection Award 2013 (Österreichischer Klimaschutzpreis) has been awarded to the Austrian company Naporo Klima Dämmstoff GmbH, which is the only Austrian company specializing in hemp products for building, construction and insulation activities. This is the latest prize in a series of awards Naporo has won since the company was founded in 2009.
The Austrian Climate Protection Award is an initiative of Austria’s Ministry of Life and state broadcaster ORF and was handed to Naporo by minister Nikolaus Berlakovich.
Naporo’s hemp insulation mats are an environmentally friendly alternative to the mushrooming insulation of buildings with styrofoam which has to be treated as hazardous waste once the building is torn down or renovated again.
Hemp insulation mats are superior to most other insulation materials, accomplishing better thermal insulation and higher sound proofing than conventionally used materials.
The thermal hemp insulation mats also help avoiding mould which is frequently appearing in styrofoam insulated buildings after two years.
