Owens Corning is devoted to delivering sustainable solutions in both of its primary business segments: Building Materials and Composites. A leading manufacturer of energy-saving insulation, Owens Corning recently introduced its revolutionary EcoTouch™ insulation. EcoTouch™ is a new class of high-performance residential and commercial insulation made with a minimum of 99% minerals and plant-based compounds and is third-party certified to be a minimum 50% recycled content and formaldehyde-free. The company’s glass fiber reinforcements, fabrics and non-wovens are used in a wide variety of composite applications. Owens Corning glass reinforcements are used to reduce the weight of vehicle components to improve fuel efficiency, to increase infrastructure durability, and to make wind turbine blades that support the growing global demand for low-carbon, renewable energy.
