See below how Insulation Solutions by ISOVER can contribute to LEED criteria: Construction and demolition waste management planning.
Born of its sustainable building beliefs, ISOVER develops waste management schemes to properly collect mineral wool and EPS waste and to transform them into new insulation.
To reduce construction and demolition waste disposed of in landfills and incineration facilities by recovering, reusing, and recycling materials.
Develop and implement a construction and demolition waste management plan:
- Establish waste diversion goals for the project by identifying at least five materials (both structural and nonstructural) targeted for diversion. Approximate a percentage of the overall project waste that these materials represent.
- Specify whether materials will be separated or commingled and describe the diversion strategies planned for the project. Describe where the materials will be taken and how the recycling facility will process the material.
Provide a final report detailing all major waste streams generated, including disposal and diversion rates.

Regarding construction waste, ISOVER works to reduce the amount of waste by offering bespoke solutions to installers, in order to minimize the construction waste and off-cuts during the installation stage.
Glass wool products have a very low wastage rate (less than 2% for rolled products and, around 5% for panels).
For packaging waste:
- Pallets are untreated wood and can be recycled; and
- Plastic packaging can be recycled if they are not contaminated with other substances such as waste paint, glue, etc.
Off-cuts during installation are limited and can be shipped back for recycling.
In relation to demolition waste, mineral wool and polystyrene products are recyclable. In some countries ISOVER develops waste management schemes to properly collect, sort out and process the end-of-life waste to become new insulation.
