Knauf Insulation is delighted to announce its innovative manufacturing process, ECOSE® Technology, has been shortlisted for the ‘Sustainable Innovation of the Year’ at the 2010 Sustainability Awards.
The prestigious awards received a record number of entries this year, making the judges job exceptionally tough, with only the highest quality entries making it through to the shortlist.
ECOSE® Technology is a revolutionary, bio-based binder made from rapidly renewable resources, which substitutes traditional petro-based binders
and is up to 70% less energy intensive than traditional binders. In addition, the patented ECOSE® Technology produces a ‘super-soft’ and easier to handle wool, with many installers not actually believing the product to be glasswool.
Combined with the brown colour and softer feel, ECOSE® Technology offers the same reliable thermal and acoustic performance that designers, contractors and installers expect from mineral wool.
James Edwards, Sustainability Manager for Knauf Insulation comments, “ECOSE® Technology really is a step change in insulation and it’s a real honour that this has been recognised by the Sustainability Awards. It is testimony to the five years of extensive research and is a very important step on Knauf Insulation’s sustainability journey.”
All shortlisted entries will be showcased at the Building Centre, home of the UKGBC, from the 19th October onwards, with visitors being able to view detailed storyboards of each entry. All winning entries will be placed in a dedicated winners’ gallery in the Café Gallery from Wednesday 1st December until the end of the year.
