The Heraklith® range of wood wool products, which are leading examples of Knauf Insulation’s pioneering approach to sustainability, are now among the materials at the forefront of taking recycling to a new level.
There is already zero Heraklith waste to landfill from production plants, but the ultimate goal of eliminating all waste is getting much closer thanks to Knauf Insulation’s innovative recycling program, RESULATION.
RESULATION, is a collection and recycling system based on collecting sorted and clean Knauf Insulation and off-cuts in big bags from construction and demolition sites for reprocessing at Knauf Insulation plants.
RESULATION, which as its name suggests, celebrates a new approach to RECYCLING in the INSULATION industry, now provides customers with an efficient, effective, one-stop alternative to landfill or incineration.
Heraklith Tektalan® wood wool multilayer panels, Heraklith Heratekta® wood wool multilayer panels, and Heraklith® wood wool panels are among the products included.
Waste from demolition sites is a major environmental issue with the construction industry responsible for more than 35% of total waste in Europe. But, thanks to RESULATION, fewer raw materials and more recycled content are now being used in production, thus making the construction industry increasingly circular.
Knauf Insulation continues to invest very heavily in recycling which is a key part of the company’s sustainability strategy. In 2022 Knauf Insulation opened a new €15 million Glass Mineral Wool facility at Visé in Belgium as a major step forward to meet Knauf Insulation’s For A Better World sustainability commitments.
The construction industry devours more than 50% of all extracted raw materials in Europe and generates more than 35% of all waste.
