In spite of the product's long life cycle AMF tiles are able to be recycled. Printing on the back of the tile ensures that the raw materials used can be identified.

Sheep wool insulation is truly sustainable; each year over 50 million kilograms of wool are sheared in the UK alone. Black Mountain uses the waste dark coloured wool that is not required by other industries.
Black Mountain has the most modern, energy efficient, zero waste, natural insulation factory in Europe. The embodied energy is extremely low, almost 90% lower than man-made mineral fibre insulation.
Man made insulation can only be disposed of into landfill; no recycling system is currently in place. Whereas sheep’s wool insulation can be composted at the end of...

80% recycled gypsum and 20% cellulose fibres derived from recycled papers, mixed with recycled water. In other words, it’s a 100% recycled material. There are no additives or preservatives used whatsoever. This is also a fully recyclable process, which means that all by-products are fed back into the production cycle.

The Rockfon environmental policy aims to support this mission by promoting continued sustainable production - and use - of durable, high quality indoor ceiling and wall solutions.
You can read Rockfon's full policy here.
Procedure for accepting post-consumer Rockwool Rockfon ceiling tiles (recyclate) returned for the purpose of recycling.
Rockwool Rockfon ceiling tiles are recyclable. To reduce the burden on landfill sites and to help minimize the depletion of resources, Rockwool Rockfon encourages the return of Rockfon ceiling tile off-cuts and Rockfon ceiling tiles reclaimed from refurbishment or demolition work, to be recycled.
Building a sustainable future requires a balanced approach to the environment, the wellbeing of people and economic prosperity. Without all three, sustainability will remain an illusion rather than a rock-solid reality.
An ever renewing source of collective passion, media promotion, economic persuasion, social compulsion and legal obligation fuels the drive towards sustainability.
Together, these imperatives are underpinned by the most important of all: environmental necessity and impending energy scarcity.
Sustainability, as an ethos, is a reaction to basic facts. Sustainability as an objective can only be the product of action.
Buildings account for 40% of the world’s energy usage and offer a good place to start.
Rockwool is an environmentally conscious company with a long track-record of producing, according to independent assessments, one of the most sustainable insulation products available.
During its long lifetime, a typical Rockwool insulation product saves more than 100 times the energy invested in its manufacture, transport and ultimate disposal. Therefore, Rockwool insulation is one of the most practical, cost-effective and environmentally efficient ways that homeowners and organisations can reduce their energy consumption and improve their carbon footprint.
This process is unique to Rockwool’s stonewool products and offers our customers many distinct advantages.
