See below how Insulation solutions by ISOVER can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Construction waste management
ISOVER uses recycled content and offers recycling services for construction and deconstruction waste that promote resource efficiency and that advance our green building agenda.
To promote resource efficiency via the effective and appropriate management of construction waste.
Development of a construction resource management plan. Reducing construction waste related to on site construction and off-site manufacture or fabrication.
Diverting non-hazardous construction (on site and dedicated off-site manufacture or fabrication), demolition and excavation waste (where applicable) generated by the project from landfill.

Saint-Gobain ISOVER has put BIM objects on the following website: https://bimlibrary.saint-gobain.com/. This new way of working permits the amount of waste to be minimized.
Glass wool is mainly made from sand, recycled glass and other minerals. Stone wool is made from volcanic rock, typically basalt and dolomite, and an increasing share of recycled material.
In addition, ISOVER insulation products are recyclable.
Glass wool products have a very low wastage rate (less than 2% for rolled products and around 5% for panels).
Regarding packaging waste:
- Pallets are composed of untreated wood and can be recycled; and
- Plastic packaging can be recycled if it is not contaminated with other substances such as paint, glue, etc.
Off-cuts during installation are limited and can be shipped back for recycling.
ISOVER develops waste management schemes to properly collect, sort out and process the end-of-life waste to become new insulation or to manufacture other useful products such as bricks. This approach contributes to this BREEAM credit.
Saint-Gobain’s BIM platform offers free information and files for our range of products solutions.
