Is Spray Foam good for the planet? Is it “green” ?

The BASF spray foam that we use is a formaldehyde free formula, that emits no VOC’s and uses Zone3 zero ozone depleting blowing agent technology. Plastic building products, including polyurethane foam, use less energy from all sources than alternative products during production. SPF insulation saved 3.4 trillion BTU’s in manufacturing energy over glass fiber in 1990. Our system also increases building energy efficiency and reduces waste. An EEA study has shown that a home insulated with SPF can prevent approximately 84,000,000 grams of carbon dioxide equivalent from being emitted into the atmosphere.
