Ecose Technology Knauf Insulation
OUR HIGHLY SUSTAINABLE BIO-BASED BINDER TECHNOLOGY WITH PROVEN PERFORMANCE

ECOSE® Technology is our revolutionary sustainable bio-based binder* used in all of our Glass Mineral Wool products, and the majority of our Rock Mineral Wool products. Invented 10 years ago, this unique binder is central to our sustainability strategy.

Insulation should be kinder to those who use it the most.

We introduced ECOSE® Technology 10 years ago; our revolutionary bio-based binder that was set to improve installers’ experience with our natural Mineral Wool insulation.

All of our Mineral Wool that is made with ECOSE® Technology contains no added formaldehyde or phenols. This means our products are soft to touch, easy to handle and generate very low levels of dust. 

ECOSE® Technology is made from rapidly renewable, natural raw materials and is 70% less energy-intensive to manufacture than traditional binders. This makes our bio-based binder much kinder to the environment too.

For the feel good factor, look for Knauf Insulation – the Mineral Wool with added ECOSE® Technology benefits.

*A binder is used in the manufacture of Glass and Rock Mineral Wool products to bind insulation strands together.
