A quiet, more energy efficient, comfortable and sustainable environment
Knauf products and resources help solve challenges of sustainable design that exist every day when planning the construction of commercial offices, hospitals, higher education buildings, multi-family homes and schools. Knauf Insulation offers Guide Specification documents which include product as well as application information that will assist you in specifying building, pipe and mechanical equipment, along with air handling insulation systems.
The purpose of these insulation systems is to create energy savings, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, along with providing improved interior environment through enhanced acoustics and improved indoor air quality. The end result will be reduced energy costs, and improved indoor environmental quality, while preserving natural resources and reducing carbon footprint in the process.
With Knauf products and ECOSE® Technology, you’ll not only help create a better indoor environment but preserve the outdoor environment as well.
EcoBatt – The next generation of sustainable insulation
Knauf Insulation EcoBatt® Insulation doesn’t look like any insulation you’ve ever seen, but that’s because its natural brown color represents a level of sustainability we’ve never before achieved.
The color comes from ECOSE Technology; a revolutionary binder chemistry that enhances the sustainability of our products. The “binder” is the bond that holds our glass mineral wool product together and gives the product its shape and brown color. ECOSE Technology is a plant-based, sustainable chemistry that replaces the phenol/formaldehyde (PF) binder traditionally used in glass mineral wool products. Products using ECOSE technology are formaldehyde-free and have reduced global warming potential when compared to our products of the past.
EcoBatt Insulation combines sand, one of the world’s most abundant resources, recycled bottle glass and ECOSE Technology to create the next generation of sustainable insulation…naturally from Knauf Insulation.
Knauf Insulation products qualify for LEED credits and how they help to reduce energy costs, improve comfort and protect the environment.
Knauf is absolutely committed to best practices in sustainable manufacturing.
ECOSE Technology contains no phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors. EcoBatt Insulation is certified for indoor air quality as a low emitting product by Knauf Insulation products with ECOSE Technology contain no phenol, formaldehyde, acrylics or artificial colors. These products are certified by UL Environment for indoor air quality (IAQ) as low emitting products and where noted, have achieved the more stringent GREENGUARD Gold certification and verified to be formaldehyde-free.
