The innovative coatings of Brightlands Materials Center (BMC, a partnership between TNO and the Province of Limburg) are entering the next phase. Both the thermochromic coating for energy-efficient glazing and the coating for dirt-repellent colored PV panels leave the laboratory. They will soon be applied in two pilots via the LEEF project. Several glass companies participate in LEEF, which was established with a subsidy from Europe: Glass for Glass for the firing of the glass and Vindico for the protection of the PV panels.
Eugène Veerkamp, Senior Business Developer at BMC in Geleen, and ir. Detlev Keijdener, Project Manager at Laudy Bouw & Ontwikkeling from Sittard, update us on the functioning of the coatings and the status of LEEF. Gert-Jan van Dijken of Glass for Glass explains the reason for his participation. In addition to Brightlands Materials Center, Laudy and Glass for Glass, Vindico, TNO and MCC Installaties are participants in LEEF.
