SPCleantech coordinates the work of the consortium NIKKI, whose purpose is to implement research and development project “New, integrated complex-composite insulation system”. The project in which, among others, participate Malopolska Centre for Energy-Efficient Construction, Cracow University of Technology, Technical University of Lodz and PWSTE in Jarosław concerns a new generation of technologies and advanced construction activity related to “hygrothermal efficiency of buildings”.

The initiator of the project is professor of Polish origin, Mark Bomberg, a researcher, lecturer at universities in Canada, the US and China.

The aim of the project is to develop leading and advanced technologies to improve the protection of heat-humidity of different kind of buildings and therefore the project was divided into two independent parts:

1. The efficiency of thermo-modernization of the outer proposed for thermo-renovations of panel or concrete buildings.
2. The efficiency of the internal thermo-modernization of historical buildings or where the outer facade will not be violated

A parallel program is run in China, and experts from the US and Europe are also working in the field of computer modeling. Both groups working with designing and implementation operating in the themes 1 and 2, namely Sino-American and Polish-European work independently of each other, both in terms of financing and materials. The exchange of experiences will occur at the annual scientific workshops. This year they are scheduled for 4 and 5 June 2015, USST (Szanghai), China and 8 and 9 September 2015 at the Cracow University of Technology.
