Design a greener future with spray foam insulation
You can help shape a greener future with a sustainable design and spray foam insulation. Energy efficiency from specifying spray foam insulation can:
- Achieve up to 50% in savings on heating and cooling
- Reduce carbon emissions by thousands of tons annually
- Reduce amount of excess materials used in construction thereby shortening construction schedules
On average, commercial building designs cost over $100 million annually in energy costs, with around 30% of energy used in these buildings being wasted1. Architects can help guide the construction industry to a new level of sustainability with superior energy efficiency technologies such as Icynene to offer total building performance solutions.
As stewards of sustainability, sustainable design and spray foam insulation, Icynene is committed to developing spray foam solutions that are environmentally sensitive. While many spray foams use HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons) as blowing agents and PBDEs (polybrominated diphenylethers) for fire resistance, these have significant effect on the environment and humans. All Icynene spray foam insulation products are PBDE-free, and several are also HFC-free.
