Our Sustainability Commitment
|New Knauf Insulation Sustainabilty Report 2016 - read more...|
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 80%;
- 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.
