In response to growing demand for its green building products, the ReWall Company is doubling its manufacturing capacity of roofing products and other materials made from recycled cartons.

Founded in 2008, ReWall converts cartons into sustainable building materials through its low energy, eco-friendly recycling technology. In July, ReWall installed new equipment to expand the capacity of its manufacturing facility in Des Moines, Iowa. This increases its need for recycled cartons from about 200 tons per month to approximately 600 tons per month.

Sharing a joint interest to increase carton recycling, the Carton Council of North America has been a longtime supporter of ReWall with the goal to expand carton recycling nationwide by growing infrastructure for recycling aseptic and gable-top cartons. The Carton Council has worked with ReWall to provide financial and technical support to help expand this innovative end market for cartons used for many common food and beverage products.

Through technology developed specifically for ReWall’s needs, the process uses no water, formaldehyde glues or hazardous chemicals. No waste is generated, and every part of the carton is incorporated into the finished products, which include roof cover board, exterior sheathing, wallboard and floor underlayment. The life cycle of the cartons will continue as the building materials can also be recycled.

There are 800 half-pint cartons in each 4 x 8 x .5” roof cover board.
