Cellulose Insulation

What is Ecocel Insulation?

Ecocel is an eco-friendly home insulation product made from recycled newspapers, which compares favourably with all imported alternatives.

Ecocel has just been issued with an EPD by the Irish Green Building Council to go with Ecocel Agrement Certificate. Ecocel creates 0.31kgs of Co2 to make 1kg of product compared to average insulation which creates 4kgs of Co2 to make 1kg of product

Our cellulose is suitable for the insulation of Timber Framed Homes, Attics and Lofts. Application is suitable not just for new homes, but also for retrofitting old homes, apartments and commercial buildings.

Why Choose Ecocel?

  • 40 % of Europe’s energy consumption is from buildings
  • Insulation saves Energy and Euro’s
  • Ecocel, cellulose insulation is a sustainable and energy efficient product because it uses locally sourced paper and inorganic salts. The salts make the cellulose safe in a fire and acts as a natural pesticide.
  • Ecocel cellulose insulation outperforms synthetic insulation in all these regards:
    • Thermally
    • Acoustically
    • Carbon Footprint

Ecocel cellulose insulation is a natural product which can hold moisture and let it go, this ability creates healthier indoor air quality as it can breathe.

Ecocel, due to it’s natural fibres, will last the life span of the building.

Often Ecocel is a more suitable product in retrofit situations as the installation of cellulose provides an air tight membrane (vapour check). In a retrofit situation often it is not cost effective to fit an air tight membrane which is required to maintain synthetic materials, therefore, in retrofits, synthetic fibres need replacing  every 10-15 years.
