Overview of the issue and your approach: Climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity today. It is characterized by a significant increase in average temperatures on Earth due to the accumulation of greenhouse gases, mainly carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), in the atmosphere. These gases trap heat from the sun, creating a greenhouse effect that contributes to global warming and its consequences, such as melting glaciers, extreme weather events, and ocean acidification.

In search of solutions to mitigate this problem, various strategies have been proposed, and one of them focuses on improving the energy efficiency of buildings. Buildings are responsible for a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions due to energy consumption for heating, cooling and lighting. Therefore, a key measure is to address heat loss through gaps and cracks in structures, such as spaces between bricks.

An effective and insulating solution for these gaps is the use of thermal insulating materials. These materials, such as expanded polystyrene foam (EPS), fiberglass or polyurethane foam, have properties that reduce heat transfer, helping to maintain internal temperatures in buildings more efficiently. By applying these materials in the spaces between the bricks, heat leakage in winter and heat entry in summer can be minimized, thus contributing to lower energy demand for air conditioning and, therefore, to the reduction of emissions. of associated greenhouse gases.

This approach not only helps combat climate change by reducing carbon emissions, but also improves the energy efficiency of buildings, resulting in long-term economic savings and a more comfortable and sustainable indoor environment. Furthermore, awareness and widespread adoption of environmentally friendly practices and technologies are essential to comprehensively address the challenge of climate change.
