NEW DELHI, INDIA: Covestro (India) Pvt Ltd in association with Habitat for Humanity (HFH) India and Industrial Foams (Pvt) Ltd has built three homes to three needy families in New Delhi, to promote sustainable and affordable living in the country under its ‘Umeed Ki Awaaz initiative’.

Covestro India, the principal sponsor of the initiative and the lead member of the India Insulation Forum, provided with advanced materials in collaboration with Industrial Foams build the three state-of-art technology, energy efficient homes. Habitat for Humanity is an international, non-governmental, and non-profit organisation.

The innovation employed a paper honey comb structure lending load bearing capacity to the structure compressed between polyurethane (PU) foam and two cement board facings. The facings are chemically stable and provide safety against fire, offer weather and termite resistance. The PU foam provides insulation, helps in reducing heat and makes the home thermally comfortable. Paper honeycomb makes the environment-friendly. 

“Sustainable thinking and acting are vital to preserve our environment and improve the quality and safety of the lives of millions. At Covestro, we strive to contribute to this goal with our products and technologies that benefit society and reduce the impact on the environment. Through this collaboration, Covestro demonstrates its commitment towards nurturing India for a better tomorrow using talented materials and technology,” said Ajay Durrani, managing director, Covestro India.

"We are excited to work with Covestro on this innovative housing project. Pre-fab technology will play in important role in resolving India's housing challenge. Habitat's work is aligned with the Government of India's Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojna and we are committed to achieving the Housing for All by 2022 vision. We need to ensure that this technology is accessible and affordable to the poor," added Rajan Samuel, managing director, Habitat for Humanity India.
