KNAUF INSULATION First To Receive Eurofins Gold Standard For Indoor Air 

Knauf Insulation has become the world’s first company to receive the coveted Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold standard. The Gold standard certificate was awarded to Knauf Insulation’s revolutionary new mineral wool products made with ECOSE® Technology and provides a strong endorsement of the enhanced environmental performance of Knauf Insulation’s new ECOSE Technology product range.

Speaking after the award Dr Roland Augustin, Director Certification Chemical Safety at Eurofins said, “We commend Knauf Insulation for leading the charge toward a more sustainable future.” Dr Augustin continued by explaining, “Knauf Insulation’s unfaced glass mineral wool with ECOSE Technology product range has met all of the defined requirements of Eurofins’ Indoor Air Comfort Gold Standard and is therefore certified as an outstanding material according to the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Indoor Air Quality emissions regulations”

“Knauf Insulation sets rigorous benchmarks for the sustainable performance of its products and we are proud to be the first to receive this coveted Gold Standard certificate”, said Tony Robson, CEO of Knauf Insulation. He continued, “Today we’re celebrating the first part of our product range to become certified through this programme. We intend, over time, to seek Eurofins certification for our complete mineral wool product range."

The move towards greater energy efficiency in buildings is expected to lead to buildings that are much more air tight and which use significantly more insulation. This in turn is leading to greater demands on products to achieve strict requirements related to indoor air quality as well as a growth in the number of mandatory and voluntary product regulations being set-up. With the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Certification programme combining the criteria of mandatory and voluntary product regulation into one trusted label, it provides manufactures and customers alike with a consolidated view of the products performance in relation to indoor air requirements.

Knauf Insulation’s launch of sustainable insulation products is in line with Knauf Insulation’s long-held culture of environmental stewardship and commitment to be at the forefront of sustainability. "We are very pleased our mineral wool with ECOSE Technology has been awarded the Eurofins’ Indoor Air Comfort Gold Standard. It is the broadest standard available today and meets all existing criteria with regards to Indoor Air Quality across Europe", said David Ducarme, Group Technical Director of Knauf Insulation. "This recognition by Eurofins underpins Knauf Insulation’s efforts to provide customers with innovative products which also meet the growing market demand for more sustainable construction materials."

ECOSE Technology is protected by a number of global patents. This revolutionary new binder technology is not only used for mineral wool, but it offers similar benefits to other products and industrial processes where resin-substitution would be an advantage, such as wood based panels, abrasives and friction materials (www.ecose-technology.com)
