A positive contribution to a clean and healthy environments.
To help offset environmentally impactful practices linked to the building industry, waste material projects and technologies, like upcycling, are being implemented to return used materials into products with commercial value.
Stone wool is recyclable. In fact it can be recycled again and again...
In a circular economy, products should be used for as long as possible – and reused to the greatest extent possible when they reach the end of their service life. We provide long-lasting solutions for buildings –such as insulation, acoustic ceilings and external facades that can be recycled indefinitely. We use a natural product, volcanic rock, to give back to nature. Thanks to the unique durability and recyclability of ROCKWOOL products, we can help our customers create more resilient buildings and cities that ultimately enrich modern living.
The building sector produces approximately one-third of all waste globally, much of which ends up in landfill. We know that it doesn’t have to be this way. Due to the design of our stone wool production, it’s possible to use materials that might otherwise be landfilled or downcycled. In fact, approximately one fourth of the raw materials used in our production is repurposed waste from other industries, power plants and municipal waste water treatment.
