Cool Roof France is revolutionizing building cooling with an ingenious approach. Utilizing discarded oyster shells, a byproduct in France amounting to 130,000 tonnes annually, the company replaces traditional calcium in roof paint with calcium from oyster shells. This eco-friendly thermo-reflective roof paint, applied in three layers, can reduce building temperatures by six to seven degrees Celsius.
The result? A 30 to 50 percent drop in air conditioning energy consumption. Cool Roof France’s remarkable innovation not only benefits businesses and institutions but also contributes to combating the urban heat island effect. Plus, they dedicate 10 percent of profits to support heat-vulnerable areas globally.
