CASE STUDY 3-liter home
By creating the first 3-liter home in Europe, LUWOGE has shown what is possible by using innovative materials when modernizing old buildings. The go-ahead to modernize a block of flats on Knietschstraße, in the Brunckviertel of Ludwigshafen, was given back in 1999. No-one could have foreseen at the time that the energy concept chosen for the renovation of the building erected in 1951 from the rubble of the war years would become famous beyond the city and the borders of Germany itself.
CASE STUDY 3-liter house Korea
At Kyonggi in the Youngin region, approximately 40 km from Seoul, BASF, together with the construction company Daelim and the fuel cell manufacturer FuelCellPower, has developed a 3-liter house which is adapted to the Korean architectural style. The use of energy-efficient construction technology, high-quality insulating materials and a fuel cell system mean that it uses only three liters of fuel oil equivalent per square meter of living area a year. This reduces the energy consumption from one sixth to one seventh of the consumption of homes in the housing stock and CO2 emission by around 80%.
CASE STUDY Low energy standard social housing
An innovative and energy-efficient method of construction is not a privilege, as the “La Clairière project shows. As a partner in the “Le Foyer Remois” social housing company, BASF is part of a new construction project for a house with 13 low energy standard residential units at Béthény near Reims, the first passive building in French social housing.
CASE STUDY Zero heating costs home
A seventies home that covers its own heating costs? LUWOGE converted an inhabited old building in the Pfingstweide district of Ludwigshafen into a zero heating costs home in a construction time of only six months.
CASE STUDY 1-liter home
LUWOGE also chooses low-energy construction for new buildings, with the “1-liter home”. Forty-six 1-liter terraced houses have been built by LUWOGE in the Brunckviertel of Ludwigshafen. Thanks to the BASF products used, these homes have an average annual heating energy requirement of only one liter of heating oil per square meter of floor space. Whereas the Energy Saving Ordinance prescribes consumption of seven liters of heating oil per year per square meter of floor space in new buildings, the new terraced houses in the Brunckdistrict consume only one liter.
