Spotlight on March's Smarter Future Award winner, Elena Dieckmann, co-founder of Aeropowder

Thu, 19 May 2016

Elena Dieckmann won a Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award in March 2016.

Business Description                                                                   

Aeropowder will create high performance insulation materials that make use of feather waste. Such products include foam insulation boards, insulation granules and blanket material. Aeropowder will save the domestic energy that is used for heating. If all homes in London were properly insulated, the resulting CO2 emission savings would equal 10% of London’s total carbon footprint. Existing feather disposal methods either involve incineration or processing into a low-grade animal food which are both energy/carbon intensive and involve a hazardous rendering process. By using feathers to create insulation products using comparatively simple techniques, these current environmentally harmful methods can be avoided.
