​Coinciding with Energy Efficiency Day, AFELMA has celebrated 40 years of activity with an act attended by various representatives from the sector.

AFELMA represents all the mineral wool producers in the Spanish market. Its objectives include promoting knowledge of mineral wool as thermal and acoustic insulators and as fire protection. To do this, AFELMA offers advice on insulation, develops training courses, edits technical publications, and promotes collaboration agreements with various organisations. AFELMA has been a member of the Spanish Association for Standardisation, UNE for more than eleven years.

AFELMA takes part in various UNE committees: materials fire test reactions; sandwich panels; sound in buildings; acoustic classification scheme; enclosures for building voids and their accessories; thermal insulation; projects; evaluation of hazardous substance emissions from construction products; sustainability in construction; building; and materials.

Paloma García, Director of UNE Standardisation Programmes and Stakeholder Groups presented a commemorative plaque to Óscar del Río, President of AFELMA.
