For this cold season (at least in the Northern hemisphere) we are happy to present an innovation which can keep your homes cosy and warm in a really sustainable manner. Reidar Berglund from Sweden uses cellulose waste from paper mills to produce a cheap, local and natural insulation for buildings.
As an energy consultant and engineer, Reidar came up with his innovation when looking for a local material of no value which is fully natural, reusable and recyclable to save costs in heating homes in the North of Sweden. He developed a production method to generate an airy cellulose fluff from waste fibers similar to diapers, mold-free and easy to apply even to retrofit old houses.
Even if Reidar does not invest into publicity by himself, word has spread about his innovation up to an international level, with projects realized in Norway and Germany... and the Royal Palace in Stockholm!
