Further, the raw material for bio-based insulation is originated from natural feedstock, the insulation material can reduce 50% of embodied energy. The technological output of a range of renewable insulation materials, such as cellulose and hemp, flax, kenaf, and cotton fibers, is equivalent to that of the mineral benchmarks. The other factors such as its functionality to accumulate and conduct moisture can contribute to a balanced indoor climate throughout the year. It is especially important for people with respiratory disorders, asthma, atopic dermatitis, for whom excessive indoor humidity is very important. Thus, making it suitable insulation material over conventional one.

High Temperature Insulation Materials Impact on Environment and Health Can Restrict the Market Growth

Insulation is a commonly used product across various industries. The processing use and disposal of insulation are correlated with a range of positive and negative environmental impacts. The most significant environmental issue associated with insulation manufacture in recent years has been the use of harmful foaming agents. Foam plastic insulation materials such as polystyrene, polyurethane, and polyisocyanurate are important for building energy efficiency and carbon footprint reduction. However, potentially harmful flame retardants are used to help foam plastic insulation to meet the flammability test. It is a concern as it has been associated with neurological and developmental damage, endocrine disturbance, and possible carcinogenicity. In general, fiber insulation materials such as cellulose, fiberglass, mineral wool, cotton have lower environmental impacts associated with their manufacture than foam plastic insulation materials, although they usually do not offer as high per inch R-values. If the insulation thickness is not unduly restricted, specify the fiber insulation.
