Waste for Warmth
For the Waste for Warmth project we have partnered with IFRC Shelter Research Unit, Field Ready og The Polyfloss Factory to develop and test a new approach to shelter winterisation by making tent insulation in the field. The insulation is made from recycled plastic, using a technology called Polyfloss. Polyfloss is a mass of thin fibres of plastic that resembles candy-floss in appearance.
The project is funded by Innovation Norway’s Humanitarian Innovation Program (HIP).
