Kingspan plans to use 500 million recycled plastic bottles a year in its insulation products by 2023.Irish Independant

And by 2025, the building materials manufacturer aims to double this to one billion.

The initiative is part of a broader programme from the group to produce its products in a low-carbon and environmentally responsible way.
