Cool new tiles hit EU market
The LIFE HEROTILE project is launching production of a new generation of roof tiles that keep buildings cool. After four years of LIFE-funded development, Italian tile manufacturer, Industrie Cotto Possagno, will start manufacturing the product in May. What sets these tiles apart is their shape. Interlocking elements on the terracotta surface allow air in but trap rain out. Depending on the weather, the added ventilation can reduce the amount of energy needed to keep living spaces fresh and comfortable by as much as 50%.
