A newspaper needs much less energy to become insulation than other raw materials. As such, it is part of a fascinating, natural cycle that produces a new, independent product with every metamorphosis.
In comparison to other insulation material, primary energy use is significantly less. It amounts to only 30% of glass wool and only 15% of polystyrene (styrofoam). Isocell cellulose insulation reduces CO2 emissions over decades and saves heating costs. And the best: while many building materials become a disposal problem, Isocell cellulose blooms again as it can be processed into plant fertiliser!
Carbonization (pyrolysis) produces a soil nutrient, which the Indians in the Amazon region already understood 7000 years ago.
This plant fertiliser is applied with the manure and, according to the latest findings, reduces the unpleasant smell by up to 75%! And at some point a tree grows again and the cycle closes.
Boric acid, the natural fire inhibitor in cellulose, is approved throughout the EU as a fertiliser in organic farming. And: Isocell-cellulose is produced exclusively with eco-electricity.
