Rockcycle® is ROCKWOOL’s pioneering recycling program
It’s now available in 19 countries and our aim is to reach 30 by 2030. How it works is fairly simple. We take back stone wool material from construction, renovation and demolition sites and recycle it in our production process to make new ROCKWOOL products.
Why is that important? Because the construction industry has a waste problem. Valuable materials are too often uncollected and misdirected to general waste, which ends up in landfill. In fact, only 20–30 percent of construction and demolition waste (CDW) is recovered at all1, indicating the urgent need to tackle this problem.
