Greensulate Insulation Board

Source

Greensulate™ is an all-natural, rigid board insulation comprised of local agricultural byproducts like cotton burrs and buckwheat hulls. Because our production process uses a growing organism to bind these seed husks into a strong rigid board, there are no glues or other resins used in our products. We strive to use regional resources, such as rice hulls from the American Mid-West, or cotton burrs from the American South-East, keeping transportation emissions and costs down. Greensulate™ starts saving energy even before you install it, since the production of Greensulate™ requires far less energy than the same quantity of typical synthetic foam insulations. Greensulate™ rigid board insulation from Ecovative has excellent thermal resistance and a tighter envelope, keeping a house comfortable in the summer and the winter, while using less energy.
