Maintain sustainability by using extruded Polystyrene Thermal Insulation

One of the most effective strategies for improving sustainability in buildings, as measured by the marginal abatement cost per ton of avoided CO2-equivalent (CO2-eq) emissions, is to increase the use of thermal insulation. Extruded polystyrene (XPS) has superior properties and thermal insulation capabilities that make it a green choice from the building envelope perspective. XPS foam is used to insulate the building envelope (walls, roofs, foundations, and basements) and also is used for thermal and moisture protection of infrastructure, cold storage, and transportation shipping containers.
