Knauf Ecose Mineral Wool

Knauf Ecose is a revolutionary new, natural, formaldehyde-free binder technology that is made from rapidly renewable organic materials instead of oil-based chemicals. It reduces embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability.

Knauf Ecose… It's Time to Save Energy

What are Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE™ Technology made from?

Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE™ Technology form a new generation of mineral wool insulation, which employ a revolutionary, new bonding agent made from natural and more sustainable organic materials than the non-renewable, phenol-formaldehyde based resins currently used.

Why are mineral wool products made with ECOSE™ Technology more sustainable than the comparable standard available products?

All Knauf Insulation mineral wool products are inherently sustainable — they have high recycled and renewable content and save hundreds of times more energy in use than that required to manufacture them. Glass and rock mineral wool made with ECOSE™ Technology is even more sustainable, as it has the added benefit of using a natural resin that is up to 70% less energy intensive than traditional binders.

What is the health risk of formaldehyde in existing products?

Formaldehyde has recently been reclassified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as a carcinogen. This has increased the focus on building products which contain formaldehyde or include it in their manufacture. The use of ECOSE™ Technology will remove formaldehyde from the supply chain and increase the confidence with which mineral wools can be used.

Why should ECOSE™ Technology be selected if other products are considered sustainable?

Sustainability is also about continuous improvement and pushing the technical boundaries. There are always opportunities to improve. This development was driven by an intensive research and development program whose aim was to provide customers with innovative products to meet the growing market need for more sustainable materials.
