A COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT AND QUALITY
In order to respect the environment, Knauf Insulation has put in place several measures. No less than 5,900 photovoltaic panels have been installed. The factory has also committed to a responsible and sustainable manufacturing process according to new environmental and technical standards. This has enabled the amount of recycled material in the manufacturing process to be increased, with up to 80% recycled glass, while reducing energy consumption, waste and CO2 emissions.
