Marche Polytechnic University (UNIVPM)  is in charge of developing cost/benefit analysis and environmental impact assessment methodologies for RIBuild.

The methodologies are based on Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCA), Life Cycle Cost (LCC) and Cost-Optimal (CO) analysis.

The research includes:

  • evaluation of the energy-saving potential of interior insulation solutions depending on building practice
  • probabilistic Life Cycle Impact Assessment (LCIA) of the environmental impact of interior insulation solutions
  • determination of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) analysis and Cost-Optimal (CO) levels of minimum energy performance of internal insulation solutions.
