Insulation products are not frequently found on the reuse market. Only a small number of operators, mainly based in the Netherlands, offer them for sale on a regular basis. However, the resale of this product is not at the heart of their economic model: In view of the low cost of these products on the ‘new’ market, it is difficult to make their reuse a separate activity in its own right. The enterprises offering reusable insulation materials are demolition firms that recover these elements from their own sites and develop a resale facility for these products as a secondary activity.
The most common products are:
Polyurethane (PU) or Polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam panels
