The Mineral wool waste management covers four steps of the EU waste
hierarchy: Prevention, Reuse, Recycling and Disposal.
End of life stage
At the end of a building’s life,
mineral wool insulation
can be
folded back into the system,
reused as insulation
in a new
building,
recycled into new mineral wool
, or
converted into
other useful products
that contribute to a sustainable solution.
The aim is to
minimise landfill
and to
maximise the recycling
of mineral wool
at the end of its life. In order to achieve this,
mineral wool producers are continuously looking at feasible
solutions to facilitate the collection, transportation and
recycling of mineral wool at the end of its life.
