Role:
Leader of Task: 7.5.

For the present project, SEPAREX will be in charge of the manufacturing of granular aerogels for its integration in mortars. Following the specifications required, the aerogels to be produced will have a size less than 2 mm of main diameter and the main properties will be a low thermal conductivity (λ<0.020Wm-1K-1), hydrophobicity and chemical stability.
