This research is part of the Integrated Project in the 6th Framework Program of the European Commission: “The Integrated Safe & Smart Built Concept” (Acronym: I-SSB). The goal of this project is the innovative development of novel gypsum plasterboard. A new mix design with a higher fire resistance property of the gypsum plasterboard will be developed by investigating the thermal properties and fire behavior of the gypsum plasterboard. A novel air purifying technology will be developed for the indoor air quality improvement based on the application of photocatalytic oxidation theory.
