Logistics case study: External wall insulation take back trial
This case study focuses on a trial undertaken during a Community Energy Saving Programme external wall insulation project covering 206 properties at Brierley Hill, Dudley.
Retro-fitting external wall insulation has the potential to deliver significant carbon savings through improved thermal performance. This case study examines the ‘zero waste’ benefits of taking back off cut insulation through a trial operated by E.ON and Kingspan Insulation Ltd.
During the trial, phenolic board off-cuts, which were historically sent to landfill as mixed skip waste, were instead segregated and taken back by the insulation supplier for subsequent use as a fuel replacement in cement kilns.
