Title: ecoCell Schaumglas: thermally insulated foundations from recycled glass
Insulations makes an important contribution to environmental protection. Minimizing heat loss through walls, basements and ceilings reduces the energy requirement for heating and thus the pollution of the atmosphere. Energy that is not lost need not be generated. Many conventional insulation materials are made from crude oil, a raw material that is becoming ever more expensive and less available. ecoCell® Schaumglas (foamed glass) is a 100% glass recycling product. By using recycled glass of all types and colors relieves recycling centers and offers an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional insulation with expanded polystyrene modules in the foundation.
