Determination of Total Carbon Impact of Plastic Insulation Materials 

This report presents the modeling and analysis framework used to evaluate the energy and GHG savings from the application of plastic insulation materials to the key components of the building envelope: roof, walls and foundation. In addition, this study reports the embodied carbon in the manufacturing and application processes of the latest generation of insulation materials available in today’s market, and provides an estimate of the carbon payback period as well as the ratio of embodied carbon to lifetime savings.
