Climate-adapted material research in Vietnam

The rapid economic development in Vietnam has led to changes in lifestyles and needs, accompanied by novel materials, building typologies, constructions and supply systems. This is associated with a variety of building physics challenges, especially under the demanding climate conditions. The project "CAMaRSEC" addresses these challenges through the implementation and further development of energy-efficient, resource-efficient and sustainable building practices.

 

UV virus protection glass

The basic idea of this project was to further develop a glass coated with titanium dioxide (TiO2), which generates reactive oxygen species through a photocatalytic process and thus reduces the viral and bacterial load, into a practically applicable transparent virus protection element. The virus protection glass can improve hygiene at sales counters, in kitchens, in refrigerators as well as in the medical field.

 

Taho - Energy-efficient and cost-efficient daylight lighting using micro-optical building components

A structure for vertical façades has already been pre-developed in dimensions suitable for building applications that directs daylight to areas deep inside a building without glare. This is currently being tested in demonstration buildings.

 

Climate-Adapted Architectural Heritage

In order to contend with extreme and imminent climate change, and to sustain cultural cohesion in the inhospitable environments that may result, we need to learn how to adapt and live with extremes by embracing climatically appropriate architecture and infrastructure.

  • Measurement sample  to determine the emitted scattered radiation in the UV-A range

    Measurement sample of the prototype, installed in the integrating sphere of the Fraunhofer IBP, to determine the emitted scattered radiation in the UV-A range.

    Effective disinfection technologies have been an important topic not only since the Covid-19 pandemic, but have increasingly been in the public spotlight since then. The basic idea of this project was to further develop a glass coated with titanium dioxide (TiO2), which generates reactive oxygen species through a photocatalytic process and thus reduces the viral and bacterial load, into a practically applicable transparent virus protection element. Fraunhofer IBP, in collaboration with Fraunhofer IGB and other project partners, has developed a product-oriented prototype that increases this effect through edge coupling UV-A radiation via LEDs and laser microstructuring. The virus protection glass can improve hygiene at sales counters, in kitchens, in refrigerators or in the medical field.
