In partnership with its customers and suppliers, KNAUF Industries has developed NEOPS®, a REDcert² certified cellular material made from biomass (green waste).

NEOPS® is an alternative to expanded polystyrene (EPS). This material innovation by Knauf Industries is the result of a collaboration between ID lab and the producers of the raw material. NEOPS® is manufactured according to the biomass balance concept.

Certified REDcert² (certification system for the use of sustainable biomass in the chemical industry), this cellular material is non-retrofuel and is derived from renewable non-food resources (green waste) according to the Mass Balance method. This innovation reduces the use of fossil raw materials and greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions by at least 30%.

NEOPS® is available with different performances (thermal, fire resistance, shock absorption and food contact). At the end of their life, NEOPS® products will be sorted and recycled through existing EPS channels.

To date, 10 Knauf Industries sites are REDcert² certified:
8 in France and 2 in Spain.
