Our Sustainability Commitment
To supply sustainable high performance insulation products for enhanced energy efficiency in buildings, we continually strive for improvements in both manufacturing operations and product design.
The result is a track record for products with leading quality and sustainability benefits. All Knauf Insulation production locations have state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment supported by an ongoing research and development program. Some of our recent achievements include:
- Use of recycled glass in our glass wool insulation products is in excess of 60%;
- Reclaimation and reuse vented heat at our factories;
- Development of the most advanced compression packaging technology in the world to reduce the transport emissions of our distribution operations, and for our customers;
- Development of revolutionary ECOSE® Technology to replace petroleum-based chemicals (e.g. phenol and formaldehyde) used in traditional insulation, leading to a 70% reduction in binder embodied energy.
