    Usual detail is 25mm pipe enclosed in polystyrene in 100mm corrugated duct to inside of building. U value of this approx. 1, so any external wall with same U value, Brick/block with 50mm insulated cavity, could be argued to give equivalent protection. Solid 9" brickwork would require 1" celotex to bring U value below 1.

    That's what they mentioned. Ground breaker. They mentioned putting it internal up living room wall. They must do something better for indoors.
