Abstract

Coconut fibre insulators, represent an insulating material considered as “exotic”, which clashes with the doubts of his thermo-hygrometric behavior, in particular, in the case of covering technology such as green roofs, a technological solution adopted in the case of sustainable buildings or nearly zero energy building. Green roofs represent a valid constructive solution with high thermal performances, adopted in existing and new buildings. The purpose of the research regards the study of the thermo-hygrometric behavior of the concrete and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) slabs, insulated with coconut fibre-boards (CF) such as alternative synthetic insulators, referred to 10 different green roofs scenarios. The results show that coconut fibre insulations are equally comparable to natural and synthetic materials, and their doubts for their applications, also in the green roofs, are related to technological solutions for the implementation in the market and their diffusion between the buildings materials.
