When assessing the contribution of a product to the circular economy one needs to assess several aspects.
1st What happens to the product itself after its use? Is it closed-loop or open-loop recycled?
2nd What other secondary materials can be recycled into the product? Are those materials upcycled or downcycled?
3rd Is there a scarcity associated with the use of additional primary raw materials and what is the efficiency of the use of those materials?
1st Closed loop recycling of our own sustainable products
To move away from the consumption method, the circular economy reduces our material footprint by re-using materials efficiently and profitably. To have a resource-efficient world we need to provide the most durable products while simultaneously using the least amount of resources.
- None of our factories send stone wool waste to landfill
- Get a sustainable closed-loop product
- Stone wool is a reusable, fully recyclable material
130 000 tonnes of stone wool were collected for recycling in 2018. We don’t down cycle, in fact, it can be recycled again and again...
