Made of at least 87% recycled post-consumer newsprint.The use of recycled newspaper reduces the consumption of virgin resources and promotes the use of post-consumption waste.
EcoLogo certified (CCD-016) which ensures verification by a third party of the main environmental attributes. The manufacturing process is very efficient from an energy standpoint.
Packaging and Transportation
85% of raw materials sourced locally within 800 km.Two manufacturing facilities geographically located to reduce emissions and
Superior thermal and acoustical product properties. At R 3.8 per inch, our insulation provides a strong air exfiltration barrier.
End of Life
The insulation when installed as per manufacturer’s guidelines, is guaranteed for the normal lifetime of the building. Product is recyclable and no waste diverted to landfills.
When considering the entire life cycle, our cellulose insulation products represent a better environmental choice when compared to equivalent insulation products.
