KORE Low Carbon Insulation has received full REDcert2 Certification. This third-party verification ensures that sustainable material flow is fulfilled and maintained from the production of raw material to the manufacture of KORE Low Carbon Insulation Boards.
100% of the fossil-based raw materials required for the manufacturing of this product were replaced as biomass certified as sustainable.
NEXT GEN EPS INSULATION
What is KORE Low Carbon?
With the REDcert-certified biomass balance (BMB) approach, fossil resources needed to produce EPS raw materials can be replaced 100% by renewable raw materials. This production method saves valuable resources while reducing the CO2 impact. Since renewable and fossil raw materials are mixed in production and cannot be distinguished from each other, the renewable portion is allocated to Neopor® BMB using a mass balance approach. Both the allocation process and the product itself, have been certified by an independent auditor.
The biomass-balanced products Neopor® BMB protect the environment and climate without sacrificing the usual quality: This is because they are unchanged from their fossil counterparts in terms of formulation and properties.
The use of renewable raw materials reduces the carbon footprint of Neopor® BMB by 90% compared to traditionally produced Neopor®.

KORE’s Low Carbon EPS offers the same benefits found in our traditional insulation materials, with no loss in thermal performance or thermal conductivity. KORE EPS remains moisture and water resistant, non-toxic and chemically inert, lightweight, versatile and cost-optimal when compared to competing insulation materials.
