Recycled bottle program reduces petroleum usage and eliminates landfill waste;
helps projects earn additional LEED credits
October 22, 2014, Arlington, Texas - Demilec, one of North America’s largest manufacturers of spray
foam products, has recycled its 300,000,000th plastic bottle into its
Heatlok family of closed-cell insulation products. Since the company’s
recycled bottle program launched in 2004, tons of plastic containers -
mostly of soda and water bottles - have been diverted from landfills and
have helped offset the use of new petroleum in Demilec’s products.
“Demilec is always looking to create products that lead to a greener
future. Our products are an important part of creating clean, energy-efficient
living spaces, workplaces and educational environments,” said Paul
Herrera, Director of Marketing at Demilec.
In addition to earning points for using spray foam insulation, projects
that use Demilec’s Heatlok products may also earn additional points
in many green certification programs, including the United States Green
Building Council’s LEED program, for its recycled materials content,
as well as its use of renewable resources. (Heatlok products also use
oil from soybeans.)
