Owens Corning: Environmental Footprint Reduction

Owens Corning announced that it is continuing conversion of its composite glass manufacturing facilities to its patented Advantex technology platform. The platform offers a higher performing glass fiber and a significantly smaller environmental manufacturing footprint compared with standard E-glass composite processes. Key environmental and product benefits include:

  • Emission reductions of more than 40 % carbon dioxide, 75 % nitrogen oxide, 40 % sulfur oxides, and up to 90 % particulates
  • More than a 35 % reduction in energy consumption
  • No Fluorine
  • Improved product corrosion resistance
  • Better product performance in aqueous environments
  • Higher softening-point temperatures and higher tensile modulus

Before its recent acquisition of Saint-Gobain’s reinforcements and composite fabrics businesses, Owens Corning had already converted nearly 80 % of its composite plants to Advantex technology, and in this new phase, is extending the conversion program to the additional facilities that came with the purchase.
