Recycled Glass as Insulation

The expanding number of uses for recycled glass continues to amaze me. A company called Ecobatt in Shelbyville, Indiana, manufactures an insulation product that uses sand and also a minimum of 30% post-consumer recycled glass content.

"Knauf EcoBatt Insulation products with ECOSE Technology form a new generation of glasswool insulation, which combines sand and post-consumer recycled bottle glass with a revolutionary, new bonding agent made from based on bio-based materials rather than the petroleum-based chemicals used in traditional fiber glass insulation binders." The product has a natural brown color so it is easy to spot.
