Performant thermo-regulator and CO2 absorber by nature, human hair waste is broadly available, collected and used in various applications such as ocean cleaning techniques.
But its primary function, the thermo-regulation of our body, makes it a material of choice for insulation of buildings.
With 38mW/(m*K) thermo-conductivity performance (Lambda), it constitutes a viable alternative to conventional insulation materials
30 million tons of hair waste is burned each year. 1 ton burned rejects approx. 1 ton of CO2. Our solution allows not only the avoidance of these emissions, but it gives a second life to a valuable and abundantly available resource.
Extreme resistance of the raw material will allow the re-use and recycle at end of life
Sol-Hair is partnering with top Swiss engineering experts from EMPA labs and HEIG-VD Energy Group.

We transform hair waste collected by dedicated associations into insulation panels through a specific industrial process and unique formula. This allows us to operate a mass production of performant insulation panels in custom made dimensions to fit various building designs and application areas
35 million buildings have to be renovated till 2030 applying new European construction Product regulations to improve eco-balance. The use of alternative materials with reduced footprint will become mainstream. Sol-Hair is definitely a part of the solution!
