At Johns Manville, we are more than building products. We are energy conservation. We are resource conservation. We are concerned about indoor air quality, and the health and well-being of our customers. We strive to be good stewards of the environment. We are committed to building a better tomorrow around the world.
JM Promotes a Healthier Environment
During our manufacturing process, JM incorporates an average of 25 percent recycled content across North America. That content (as certified by Scientific Certification Systems) includes at least 20 percent post-consumer and the balance post-industrial recycled glass. All that adds up to 90,000 tons of recycled content in JM fiber glass insulation each year.
We care about clean air, too. We are the only fiber glass insulation manufacturer to use pollution prevention measures to reduce annual hazardous emissions by more than 200,000 pounds. And the U.S. EPA has recognized the JM move to Formaldehyde-free™ insulation by awarding JM the insulation industry's only exemption from the EPA's formaldehyde Hazardous Air Pollutant regulations.
Removing Formaldehyde Reduces Air Pollution
Because we've removed formaldehyde from our building insulation, we've eliminated binder-related formaldehyde emissions during manufacturing. As a result, our plants that make fiber glass insulation without formaldehyde are so "clean," they're exempt from U.S. EPA Hazardous Air Pollutant Regulations. In addition, our pollution prevention measures have reduced annual hazardous emissions by over 200,000 pounds.
