Low Environmental Impact

Eurobond insulated cladding panels are totally recyclable. We advocate a 'Cradle to Cradle' approach to recycling where materials are perpetually recycled in closed loops without losing any material quality. The stonewool core in Eurobond composite panels is non-hazardous and there is no need to send waste to landfill or to specialist waste retreatment facilities.

Eurobond composite panels satisfy the most stringent sustainable procurement policies:

  • Total recycling of steel and stonewool
  • Zero waste to landfill
  • High recycled content
  • Full life cycle assessment
  • Zero ODP & GWP
  • No Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC Free)
  • Stonewool is classified as non-hazardous waste
  • No Compromise

Eurobond takes its responsibility to protect and enhance the environment seriously. We have made a commitment to address sustainability issues with a high regard for openness and clarity surrounding our products.

Working closely with our strategic partners, we have developed Environmental Product Declarations for all of our steel faced composite panel products using ISO 14040-3 methodology. These provide, in useable numeric form, clear statements of the environmental impact of our cladding products.

As the construction industry generates over 100 million tonnes of waste and is the UK's biggest user of natural resources, we have also addressed the implications for building materials at the end of their useful life (End of Life).  In the 2007 Waste Strategy from DEFRA the government commits to a 50% reduction in demolition and construction waste going to landfill by 2012 compared to 2005 levels with a target of 0% by 2020.

A joint collaboration between Eurobond, Rockwool and Corus has demonstrated that there is a successful, commercially viable recycling process for stone wool composite panels.  After processing, the separated stone wool and steel is re-entered into the manufacturing process to make virgin product - the Eurobond concept of RECYCLING.

The closed loop recycling ensures that all Eurobond input materials have a high recycled content as we purchase materials from the same sources at which we recycle. Using products with a high recycled content is a powerful way of making a contribution to sustainable development by diverting materials from landfill and preserving natural resources.
