The stone wool produced by Eurocoustic is composed of briquettes, slag, coke and especially basalt. Basalt is a material available in abundance in nature. It is extracted from a quarry located a few kilometers from the factory.
Also, slag, scrap manufacturing of steel, and briquettes, scrap manufacturing of our production, are reintroduced into the manufacturing process.
To preserve natural resources, we recycle all factory waste and try to increase the amount of recycled content in our products.
In addition, the coils used to manufacture our grids are bought in France from near our manufacturing site.
Finally, the packaging of our products is recycled cardboard.
Additionally, to optimize production lines, our plant in Genouillac is ISO 14001 (EMS) certified by an independent third party which meets the requirements of this target.
