Is-sur-Tille, France – PU panel producer Myral is advancing a project to reduce the environmental impact of its manufacturing capacities by increasing the company’s reliance on recycling.
Based in Is-sur-Tille, in the country’s Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, Myral manufactures a range of exterior wall insulation products. The producer’s panels contain what the company describes as a 'new generation polyurethane insulant (PIR) incorporating a proportion on bio-sourced material".
By January 2025, the company aims to cut the carbon footprint of its production activities by up to 70% compared with its reported levels from January 2022, according to information obtained by local industry news source L’Usine Nouvelle. This is to be achieved by increasing the amount of recycled raw material used in Myral’s manufacturing process.
The company says its products are “certified, and the subject of a technical advisory note by the CSTB [France’s scientific and technical centre for the construction industry], for all façade insulation needs of multi-dwelling units or single-family houses, office buildings or public facilities, for new builds or refurbishment”.
Myral exterior-facing insulation panels are used in the single-family housing and multi-dwelling unit sectors, on public-access buildings and in the service sector. Myral has been designing, producing, and marketing external wall insulation (EWI) and façade cladding solutions since 1987.
The French company makes more than 150,000m2 of insulating and exterior facing panels per year. Currently, the producer supplies its output to some 2,000 construction sites annually, and exports about 25% of its products to numerous foreign markets.
