The evolution of insulation and Icynene at Greenbuild 2012

Discover Icynene’s evolution of insulation at the upcoming 2012 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from Wednesday November 14th through to Friday November 15th, the conference is considered the world’s largest dedicated to green building practices and energy efficiency.

Improving Commercial Building Performance and Sustainability

With a growing focus on energy efficiency and sustainable living, architects and designers have an opportunity to help shape the direction of green, sustainable design.
