Kronos Precision Extrusion is honored to design and supply high-performance Polyamide Thermal Barrier Strips for the Thermally Broken aluminium windows and doors of the Gaobeidian Railway City Passive Buildings, which is the world's largest passive house complex.
Gaobeidian Railway City Passive House in China is jaw-dropping, showing how to scale energy efficient building. It is the largest Passive House project in the world, a mix of housing, offices and retail.
This single project totals 330,000 square meters of certified Passive House buildings - 8 high rises, 12 multifamily buildings, and 6 villas - a figure that rivals the total square footage of all Passive House projects built in North America to date. This is the sort of scale and speed that we need to adopt everywhere to slash operational carbon emissions quickly enough to avert climate catastrophe.
China is really showing that Passive House is truly international and scalable. The entire Passive House industry in China is mind-boggling, with more than 80 different companies making windows to Passive House standards.
The Chinese government set a guideline in 2017 proposing demonstration projects of ultra-low-energy-consuming and near-zero-energy-consuming buildings.
Wang Zhen, a resident in Gaobeidian's passive house district, said the temperature in her house remains at 20 degrees Celsius without heating in winter or air conditioning in summer.
Kronos Precision Extrusion will keep making its contribution by producing more high efficient polyamide insulating profiles for the low-energy buildings worldwide.
