Knauf Insulation – Continuously striving to make the world a better place

Whilst we are dedicated to supplying sustainable high performance insulation solutions for enhanced energy efficiency in buildings, we also continually strive for improvements in our manufacturing and supply chain operations so to improve quality and minimise our impact on the environment.

As the market leader and a non-stop innovator, quality excellence and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. Our Glass Mineral Wool insulation solutions contain up to 80% of recycled materials; the majority of which comes from the Glass Cullet facility we developed in partnership with Veolia.

In 2017 we entered into a long term contract with Veolia, to create a state-of-the-art glass cullet processing facility, next to our manufacturing plant in St. Helens, Merseyside, UK.

Now operating to its full capacity, the facility gives yearly a new lease of life to over 60,000 tonnes of used glass bottles and jars collected from households, as it cleans, separates and refines it into high purity raw materials to be used in the manufacturing of our high performance, energy-saving insulation solutions.

See our latest videos to learn more about how we are setting the standards for mainstream recycling and paving the way in the area of circular economy.
