Symposium continues with risks and energy-efficient construction and sanitation apart from the 7th-10th October 2010 the RENEXPO, international trade fair for renewable energies and energy efficient construction and renovation, will take place for the eleventh time in the exhibition centre of Augsburg. During the fair, the 1st Symposium continues to avoid microbial-induced damage in the modern house construction on October 8″apart with the opportunities and risks of energy-efficient construction and sanitation. The Conference is organized by REECO GmbH and bifa Environmental Institute and carried out in cooperation with the VDI and the Augsburg College. The trend towards the use of natural and natural of wooden building materials, combined with a ventilation system changed in the energy-efficient construction and renovation, can cause an unwanted growth of (-) fungi and bacteria not properly performing. In addition to health risks, damage to the structure of the result can be and require extensive renovation work. The 1st Symposium on preventing microbial-induced damage in the Modern House construction”is divided into four thematic blocks: introduction presentations shows the importance of microbial damage to human health and the value of real estate. Then addressed ways to avoid such damage, as well as procedures for the recognition and professional rehabilitation of damaged living spaces. Ventilation concepts are also presented for energy-efficient living without moisture-related bacteria and mold growth. Finally, innovative building materials with dirt and germ-reducing properties are presented. Online at for more information and the current exhibition program.
