Don’t be fooled into thinking all insulation materials are “green” simply because they save you energy. That’s what insulation is designed to do! Some just do it more environmentally friendly.
Climate change is a stark reality facing the world today and we’re proud to do our part to combat the crises. The reduction of carbon dioxide and methane gases are critical to addresses greenhouse gases affecting climate change. The carbon sequestering of recycled wastepaper more than offsets the associated transportation, manufacturing, and installation carbon footprint.
The following are key considerations:
- AFT Carbon Smart™ and AFT Carbon Smart Plus™ cellulose insulation use a minimum 85% recycled wastepaper.
- Reduces landfill space and greenhouse gas release from decomposing wastepaper.
- Our manufacturing process will use a “carbon free” electric supply starting May 2021.
- There is no insulation jobsite waste as insulation material is vacuumed and recycled for wall spray with virtually no waste. Fiberglass batts and foam are trimmed to fit and have waste.
It’s not just talk. AFT had a company specific life cycle analysis (LCA) completed and verified by 3rd parties. This Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) transparency report is available to download as a PDF.
AFT Carbon Smart™ and AFT Carbon Smart Plus™ cellulose insulation is Climate Wise. You can make a difference to the environment by turning your house into a “carbon sink”.
