Stone wool thermal insulation will be produced in the east of Sweden, so ROCKWOOL has acquired 180,000 square metres of land there to construct a manufacturing facility.
They made this decision because of the growing demand for mineral wool insulation on the Swedish market.
Rockwool’s mineral wool insulation is included in the GREEN BOOK, a catalog of environmentally friendly building materials. Tests confirm this material is fireproof. To examine they used the procedure specified in GOST 30403-2012 Building structures. Fire hazard test method.
To recap, some time ago another multinational company, Saint-Gobain GC, closed its glass fiber thermal insulation plant in Romania, but continued to produce basalt mineral wool on its second line of production.
