What do you do with your old windows? What if, instead of throwing them away, we turned them into insulation for your home? Here's a concrete example of the benefits of the circular economy in the construction sector: in Denmark, the method called "from glass to wool", developed by Saint-Gobain ISOVER and its local partners, turns window glass into eco-designed glass wool.
This is a way to reduce the waste generated by a building site, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of glass wool. Recycling one ton of glass means saving 210 kilograms of CO2 – without of course affecting the quality of this environmentally friendly insulation.
Here are the three steps to follow: collecting the windows, dismantling them and then turn them into glass wool. From the collection site to the factory, come with us and follow the route of an eco-designed glass wool!
