In October 2015, the Assessment Guidelines for Green Building Materials (Trail) (hereinafter referred to as “Guidelines”) jointly printed and issued by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of the People’s Republic of China specifies the assessment requirements for seven categories of building materials including heat insulating materials. The Guidelines came into force in March 2016 and the assessment work on the seven categories of materials also successively proceeded henceforth. For the purpose of deepening implementation of the Guidelines issued by two Ministries, the specific performance indicators of different heat insulating materials are analyzed in detail and indicators such as heat conductivity coefficient and combustion performance are interpreted in five parts, i.e., energy-saving, emission reduction, safety, convenience and recyclability based on the principles for formulation of the Guidelines.
