By Fiberlite Technologies, Inc.
InCide® Pest Control Insulation by Fiberlite Technologies, Inc. has the bonus of green benefits found only in cellulose insulation. It is a proven green leader in the building products industry. InCide® creates an amazing barrier to insulate against the elements and bugs in homes and buildings while offering environmental benefits other insulation products can’t achieve.
Renewable Natural Resource
InCide® Pest Control Insulation is made from a renewable natural resource that can be produced in an endless cycle.
High Recycled Content
InCide® Pest Control Insulation is manufactured from 100% recycled paper. Paper is the largest component of landfills and producing InCide® diverts waste from the landfills thus saving valuable space.
Lowest Embodied Energy
InCide® Pest Control Insulation takes less energy to produce than other types of insulation. This is often referred to as “Embodied Energy” and calculates the total energy required to transport raw materials, manufacture and distribute the product. Fiberglass has up to 10 times more embodied energy than cellulose and foam products have even more--as much as 64 times!
Helps Reduce Greenhouse Gases
InCide® Pest Control Insulation prevents the release of greenhouse gases (methane) as newspaper used in its productions would otherwise decompose in landfills
Using local recycling programs and independent recyclers and servicing communities close to home brings new meaning to the old slogan “Think Globally, Act Locally.”
Natural Carbon Sequestration
Paper comes from trees which are the single biggest place where carbon is sequestered on the planet. As wood and paper made from trees decay, carbon is released into the atmosphere. When homes and buildings are insulated with InCide® Pest Control Insulation, the carbon in its raw material (paper) is trapped for the life of the structure.
