Zenova Group PLC (“Zenova”, the “Company” or the “Group”), a provider of innovative fire safety and heat management technology and products, is pleased to announce that Southdown Housing Association which has selected its innovative insulation products for a pilot project making use of the insulating properties and capabilities of Zenova IR render and Zenova IP paint is being launched on 4 October this year.
In addition, Synetica Limited (www.synetica.net) has been retained as an independent third party tasked with testing the effectiveness of the Zenova products used in this pilot programme.
This full pilot with Southdown Housing will assist them in reducing their carbon footprint under the new Government legislation guidelines of zero carbon emissions. With most local authorities looking to achieve this target by 2030, Zenova’s innovative products can contribute significantly to accomplishing these objectives. Building operational emissions, which include heating, cooling and lighting, contribute to 28% of all global emissions.
The pilot is located in a semi-detached residential property that will be rendered using Zenova’s unique formulation render (Zenova IR) and its innovative powerful insulation paint (Zenova IP) within the internal walls, floors, ceilings and roof space. Southdown Housing is a specialist charity housing provider and social landlord for vulnerable people, with 580 properties based in Sussex County. It was established in 1972 and has grown to become one of the largest voluntary sector employers in Sussex, providing care and support for over 9,000 people.
Jim Aspdin Director of Housing for Southdown Housing Association said:
“Southdown Housing is pleased to have initiated this pilot program with Zenova Group Plc using its insulating render and insulating paint products.
We are confident that the results of this program will demonstrate that as responsible custodians of housing for our tenants and the community we can progress towards the targeted reduction in energy costs and emissions given rising prices and of course world climate change”
Tony Crawley, Chief Executive Officer of Zenova Group PLC, said:
“This momentous pilot scheme with Southdown Housing now commences at the beginning of October and will prove the powerful efficacy of the Zenova range of insulating products to save energy costs under real-world circumstances. Nowadays, housing sector, including local authorities and trusts face the great challenge imposed by new legislation to meet carbon reduction targets. This increasing necessity to improve the fabric of buildings offers a significant market potential and Zenova has already attracted interest which will further boost the rapid expansion across multiple building facilities.”
