Company Summary

CleanFiber makes high performance building insulation from recycled corrugated cardboard (a growing supply) using a patented and proven technology. CleanFiber’s product is a superior drop-in replacement for conventional cellulose insulation made from declining supplies of newsprint. Fiberglass and foam in the $15 billion N. American insulation have significant health and safety issues. CleanFiber also has a substantial impact on GHG emissions.
