Thermal insulation materials are mostly flammable, toxic and having high carbon footprint due to the production process. After the London Grenfell fire in 2017, there are increasing demands for non-flammable insulation materials. To address this need, a new type of non-flammable insulation foam is developed at ETH Zurich. The foam is produced from non-toxic materials and has zero CO2 emission during production.
