We supplied over 500,000 m 2 of ECOSE Duct Insulation, 18,000m 2 Duct Liner for acoustic treatments and 450,000m of ECOSE pipe insulation.
"Our patented ECOSE technology was selected for the project as it is manufactured from naturally occurring and recycled raw materials, and bonded using a bio-based technology free from formaldehyde, phenols, acrylics and with no artificial colors, bleach or dyes added.
fibreglass is manufactured from naturally occurring and/or recycled raw materials and bonded using a bio-based technology, free from formaldehyde, and is 70 per cent less energy intensive than traditional petroleum-based bonding agents.
The gold standard certificate was awarded to Knauf Insulation's revolutionary new mineral wool products made with Ecose technology and provides a strong endorsement of the enhanced environmental performance of Knauf Insulation's product range using that technology.
Speaking after the award, Dr Roland Augustin, director of certification, chemical safety, Eurofins, said, "We commend Knauf Insulation for leading the charge toward a more sustainable future." Dr Augustin continued by explaining, "Knauf Insulation's unfaced glass mineral wool with Ecose technology product range has met all of the defined requirements of Eurofins' indoor air comfort gold standard and is therefore certified as an outstanding material according to the VOC (volatile organic compounds) indoor air quality emissions regulations".
