  • Recycled glass: Pink® Batts® insulation contains more than 80% recycled glass, material that might otherwise be destined for landfills.
  • Recycled packaging: As of early 2016 we have updated all plastic packaging so that all Pink® Batts® bags and over-sleeves are now 100% recyclable.
  • Water usage: We have reduced our average water intensity (the amount of water required to make Pink® Batts® products) by 45% from 2013.
  • Future product development: By redeveloping the size of our Pink® Batts® wall products, onsite cutting and wastage will be reduced.
Technology and Innovation
  • Glass melting technology: In 2008 we changed our glass melting technology so that we now use 50% less energy when making Pink® Batts®. The energy used in the manufacturing process is now offset by a fully insulated home in less than 15 months. 
  • WESP installed: Our wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP) installed on site at our Auckland location deals with the emissions from the manufacturing process. The WESP removes 90% of PM10 emissions leaving no visible plume except for water vapour.
  • Equipment efficiency: Our motor replacement policy allows us to keep track of the efficiency of motors used in the Pink® Batts® manufacturing process, and replace them with new more energy efficient models where appropriate to do so.
