A CRITICAL REVIEW OF THERMAL INSULATORS FROM NATURAL MATERIALS FOR ENERGY SAVING IN BUILDINGS

Shalom Akhai, Suneev Anil Bansal, Sarabjit Singh.

Abstract
This article offers a brief guide to widely used natural insulation materials and their ranges of thermal conductivities published by various researchers. The properties of composite or hybrid materials from these natural insulator materials can be studied to improve their environmental performance, energy efficiency, and including their costs economics. The thermal characteristics are considered most important in the context of low values of conductivity. A lot of previous researchers showed that the naturally occurring insulation boards can be developed from natural resins, fibers, etc. The researchers were able to fabricate insulation panels which were so good that they could be directly compared to the synthetic boards. In this paper, the authors have studied a lot of past studies and then have shortlisted the most relevant of those studies. Thus the aim is to provide a summary of natural insulation materials and their thermal engineering applications by illustrating the review papers written on various subjects, for readers to link to the latest review papers on such materials and make contributions to the specific area of interest. Thus the basic explanation of natural insulation material with compactable values of various properties is stated and included herein.

Key words: Insulation material, thermal conductivity, energy efficiency.
