The climate is changing: how do we manage extreme rainfall? Not only more rain is falling due to climate change, but rain showers are often more extreme. This means that a lot more water has to be collected and disposed of in a short time. In the countryside this is not usually a problem, but it is more so in the increasingly urbanised environment.
The old office building “Center 2” in the ROCKWOOL Groups headquarters has been through one of the most ambitious energy renovations of commercial buildings in Denmark. It is an excellent example of how old commercial buildings can be refurbished, creating modern and efficient workplaces. Before the renovation the energy consumption was equivalent to that of “Energy […]
From recycling to insulation ROCKWOOL insulation is among the few industrial products in the world that saves vast amounts of energy throughout the entire product life cycle, thus also reducing greenhouse gas emissions, acid rain and smog. World’s first return system for mineral wool The ROCKWOOL Group has developed the first return system for mineral […]
Creating the right environment: For the curved facade of Denmark’s new aquarium, The Blue Planet, ROCKWOOL Denmark has delivered hard batts and Super Venti-Batts to secure optimal insulation. The Blue Planet is a 9,000 m2 brand new aquarium designed by Danish architecture firm 3XN. With a great variety of species on display it is a major […]
Minister of the Environment, Ida Auken, inaugurated the first return system in Denmark to recycle insulation residue from both refurbishments and demolitions. Stone wool residue is now collected at public waste recycling sites and returned to the factory. The ROCKWOOL factory in Doense is seen as a model example of how industry can help achieve the government’s Resource Efficiency Strategy.
Energy consumption is reduced and employees are provided with a better indoor climate. Those are the benefits of the design of the LINCE ASPRONA group building in Valladolid, Spain, where the architects have worked strategically to improve the bioclimatic performance. When creating sustainable architecture, the right materials make all the difference. ROCKWOOL® insulation solutions have […]
The project is initiated by Høje-Taastrup municipality and is probably one of the most ambitious projects for energy efficient renovations of childcare centres in Denmark. 7 facilities are already completed. 27 child care centres will be energy renovated.

Heating and cooling are the main energy consumers in buildings and account for two thirds of a building’s total energy consumption. However, most of this energy is wasted due to inadequate insulation. By using well-proven energy efficiency techniques, 70 to 90 % of a building’s energy need for heating or cooling can be cut. […]
Buildings account for up to 40% of society’s energy demand and thereby play a key role in the green transition. This White Paper can be used as a tool for inspiration to spot the potential or implement building automation and energy-efficient measures in new and existing buildings globally.
When looking at the global climate challenges, the energy system is one of the biggest obstacles towards a carbon-free and net-zero future. The European Union has set ambitious objectives for an energy system, which integrates renewable energy and energy efficiency, as well as enabling a well-functioning energy market. These elements in combination can support a […]
