Talking sustainability with REHAU at ecobuild

  • 7 Mar 2018

REHAU‘s sustainability strategy within the build environment will be further showcased at this year’s ecobuild show at the District Energy Hub.

Continuing today (7th March) and tomorrow, the event will focus on the most innovative solutions to improve building performance, infrastructure and energy.

Recent technological developments will be discussed, as well as the most innovative materials leading the built environment at the moment.

The district energy seminar programme, brought to you by UK District Energy Association, will be a pivotal aspect of the event.

With programme speakers from BEIS and UK providers, there is sure to be guidance on design, innovation, delivery and potential solutions, plus a look at some of the newest product innovations.

Steve Richmond, Head of Marketing and Technical of REHAU’s Building Solutions, will present the company’s continued approach towards sustainability at this district energy seminar.

Up for discussion is REHAU’s incredible contribution to the market; NEXUS, the world’s very first hot tapping system for PE-Xa district heating networks.

Introduced last year, REHAU NEXUS can make retrospectively extending an existing heat network possible.

It can also add a ventilation or measuring point to a district heating system using REHAU PE-Xa pipes.

Beforehand, hot tapping could only be done with polymer pipes in cold water and gas mains and with steel district heating pipes; REHAU NEXUS is suitable for use on RAUVITHERM and RAUTHERMEX PE-Xa pipe systems and is manufactured in accordance with EN15632.

On top of this, its corrosion-resistant design ensured it has a minimum lifetime of 30 years .

Steve added: “The design of the built environment plays a crucial role in achieving sustainable consumption. In order to sustain ourselves amid ongoing climate change, we must put every effort to design buildings with a sustainable carbon footprint.

“I am very excited to be attending Ecobuild 2018 and look forward to meeting some exciting and inspiriting brands and discuss our approach towards sustainability in the changing environmental context today.”
