Nanotechnology applied to apartment house overhaul in Russian region

A pilot project for the overhaul of a typical residential house with the use of nanotechnology has been successfully completed.

Today, a house in the village of Kartyshovo located in the Russian region of Kaluga was inspected by the director of the Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs, Andrey Svinarenko, and the Construction Minister of the Kaluga region, Aleksey Shigapov. As our special correspondent, Peter Larin, reports from the ground, a panel house of 1-335А series built in 1979 was selected for a pilot project.

There are over a thousand of such buildings throughout the country. The matter is that houses of mass production, which were built in the 1960s, were not designed for continuous operation. However, as practice shows, not for all regions it is economically feasible to demolish these houses and to build new ones.

After the overhaul, the house’s energy consumption is expected to decrease by 30%, and the lifetime of the building will increase by 30 years. The Fund has developed the documentation for the repair of typical houses with the use of innovative developments, including nanotechnology.

Modules made of basalt wool have been used for the façade’s thermal insulation. These modules are more durable and repairable, and obtain better insulating properties than those applied for traditional ventilated facades. Foam glass gravel was used for roof insulation, that retains heat better than traditional clay, as well as is lighter and more durable. A system of external reinforcement on the basis of composite carbon films was applied to strengthen the building’s structure and insulation of seams between plates.

As a result of application of these innovations, over the course of two months of the house exploitation, its tenants have spent 31% less gas than in the same period last year.
