Abstract

In order to protect the environment in present-day society, green buildings are seen as an effective and logical solution. Insulating materials are frequently widely used in green buildings to reduce their energy dissipation. China, as a global power, is at the forefront of ecological development. This paper will focus on the study of thermal insulations in the context of green concepts, a specific analysis of their properties and examples of their application in China. It is found that most of the green developments lack economic support and therefore, insulation materials need to be developed in the direction of low cost and high efficiency and effectively reduce their harmful effects on the environment. Furthermore, the development of insulation materials in China should pay attention to geographical differences, i.e. the insulation materials that can be applied in different regions in the North and South are different. This study will facilitate the application of insulating materials in China's ecological development, reducing related energy losses and protecting the surrounding environment.
