Insulation is the great “split-personality” building material from an environmental perspective. On the one hand, insulation’s role in conserving building energy by minimizing thermal transfer is critically important. On the other hand, many typical insulating materials are derived from fossil fuels, require significant power to produce, and incorporate ingredients that are harmful to human health.

As a result, scientists and product manufacturers are currently focusing on fossil fuel alternatives that deliver thermal performance without high emissions or human health concerns
