Superlight Evaporator Green Roof (TECTUM)

Tecnológico de Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A lightweight Green Roof for industrial, commercial and residential roofs based on a polymer mixture that provides a better thermal insulation and water efficiency. Proven to be higher in efficiency than current-market models due to its low installation and maintain costs, reducing energy consumption.

Primary Application Area: Energy & Efficiency

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 6

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Our green roof model is significantly lighter and has been proven to be more efficient than conventional products. Its lightweight characteristic reduces installation costs while reducing as well energy consumption due to its thermal insulation. Furthermore, it doesn't require much maintenance since it keeps in humidity for the vegetation.
