An abundant natural resource

Volcanic stone is an abundant natural resource and a truly sustainable building material choice. Every year the earth produces 38,000 times more stone than we use in the entire ROCKWOOL group.

First discovered in Hawaii at the beginning of the nineteenth century, basalt stone is a natural by-product of volcanic activity that is melted and then spun into stone wool fibres.

Acoustic solutions for the circular economy

Minimising the material footprint is key to sustainable living, which is why our solutions follow the “reduce- reuse- recycle” philosophy  of the circular economy.

But that’s not all, we also work to improve our ability to recycle waste from other industries, doing our part to divert the 1-2 billion tonnes of construction waste that ends up in landfill each year.

Recycling 2.0

 

  • We upcycle waste from other industries, giving them a second life by creating products with commercial value rather than simply having them sent to landfill.
  • We don’t divert any scarce resources away from other industries.
  • We contribute to the circular economy.
