NAIMA has released a new guide that details how builders can use fiberglass and mineral wool insulation to aid in whole building decarbonization activities. “Building Decarbonization Using Fiberglass and Mineral Wool” reviews the two principal objectives of whole building decarbonization -- reducing operational and embodied carbon in building materials. It also defines key terms, including:
- Operational and Embodied Carbon
- Product Category Rules
- Life Cycle Assessments
- Environmental Product Declarations
The publication also highlights the legislative and regulatory provisions of various U.S. states and jurisdictions that address decarbonization.
