Made from synthetic gypsum as a byproduct of generating electricity.
Read how a byproduct of a coal-fired electrical generation plant becomes high-purity gypsum board products.
CERTIFIED Recycled content
The entire GreenGlass product line is SCS certified in accordance with ISO 14021 standards to contain a minimum of 90% pre-consumer recycled gypsum content on a dry-weight basis. This standard-setting level of recycled content will aid you in meeting the demand for and growing emphasis on building green with:
Indoor environmental quality is high on the list of building owners and occupants. Specifying GreenGlass gypsum products contributes toward a healthy indoor space when the project is finished.
LOW VOC-EMITTING MATERIAL:
Temple-Inland GreenGlass fiberglass faced gypsum products are third-party certified by Materials Analytical Services (MAS) to meet the performance standard established for low-emitting materials under the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) program.Learn More
Sulfur Emissions Testing:
MAS also tested Temple-Inland gypsum products from all of our drywall manufacturing facilities for sulfur emissions including carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide. Our gypsum board was determined to be free of sulfur off-gassing and is not considered a problematic corrosive drywall type.Learn More
Temple-Inland key’s objective in developing the GreenGlass product line was to contribute as much as possible to environmentally responsible design and construction. We understand that architects, specifiers, and general contractors face daily challenges to design and build projects that are greener today than what you accomplished yesterday.
Due to our high, SCS-certified 90% recycled content in every GreenGlass product line, we can help you score points in major green building certification programs including LEED and NAHB’s National Green Building Standard.
NAHB National Green Building Standard: Resource Efficiency 604.1(2) —- Pre-Consumer Recycled Content – specifies the use of at least two recycled content products in major building areas. Learn More
