Stone wool insulation manufacturer Paroc, part of the Fortune 500 and Dow Jones Sustainability Index company Owens Corning, is launching a new carbon neutral product line, Paroc Natura. Like other Paroc stone wool products, the new line offers the building industry fire-safe, moisture-proof, and durable insulation products. In addition, it answers the growing need to minimize the building industry’s CO2 emissions. The new product line will be available in the beginning of 2021.
- “By using low-carbon melting technology, green electricity, recycled waste material and new technologies, we minimize the amount of CO2 emitted in manufacturing the product and then, by CO2 compensating the remaining CO2, we can offer a totally carbon neutral product,” says Beatrice Hallén, Sustainability Leader for Owens Corning Insulation Europe.

- “Insulation is a key solution to the problem of climate change, since around 40% of greenhouse gas emissions generated by humans comes from buildings. We want to continue to be frontrunners in developing sustainable buildings together with our customers. and the product line Paroc Natura is an important step in this work,” says Hallén.
