Forward-looking action with natural resources

Weiter

It is our responsibility to protect and conserve nature and the environment.

Because of this we use natural materials almost exclusively as the basis for our Mineral Wool products.With our formaldehyde-free binding agent ECOSE® Technology we also reduce energy consumption during manufacture and improve the energy balance of the finished product.As winners of the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold award, our insulation materials ensure excellent indoor air quality and are ideally suited for sustainable use.

As part of our insulation materials, natural components enable our customers throughout the world to construct buildings with environmentally-friendly components and to save the energy which was required for production within a few weeks.

ECOSE® Technology

Our formaldehyde-free binder ensures an improved energy balance and excellent indoor air quality.

    Environmental Product Declaration

    Environmental Product Declaration

    Ecological building assessment according to ISO standards

    We make every effort to provide the market with the information it needs to correctly assess the environmental effects of our products and solutions.

    Read more

    In the assessment of the sustainability of our products we examine every phase of the life cycle of the product with the aid of an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) from start to finish. This information is then processed and published as an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).

    We are pioneers in product sustainability. This is shown by the fact that we have greatly reduced the time taken for the process which is necessary for the production of an EPD by means of innovative data recording and pre-verification of the component. Production of an EPD includes exceedingly intensive and comprehensive data recording, hundreds of calculations and strict verification.
