Overview: Knauf Insulation: Taking Sustainable Insulation to a New Level
At Knauf Insulation, we take our commitment to providing products and services that conserve energy and preserve natural resources for a sustainable future seriously. That’s why we’ve taken sustainable insulation products to a whole new level with the introduction of insulation products made with ECOSE® Technology.
Knauf Insulation products have always been sustainable—made from sand, one of the world’s most abundant, renewable resources and a minimum of 40% post consumer recycled bottle glass collected from curbside recycling programs. And now, the addition of ECOSE Technology makes our products even more sustainable.
Increased Sustainability; Same Legendary Characteristics
ECOSE Technology is based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials rather than non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals traditionally used in fiberglass insulation product binders. It does not contain phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors; and reduces the binder embodied energy by up to 70% as compared to our previous products. ECOSE Technology reduces the expected Global Warming Potential and total embodied energy of EcoBatt Insulation by approximately 4%.
Knauf Insulation products meet all applicable performance specs and standards, including the stringent GREENGUARD Children & SchoolsSM certification Use of Knauf Insulation products can have a significant impact on building projects meeting green building standards as set by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System.
