The Company is fortunate to be entering the market with competitive environmental products just as a number of industries are attempting to green their supply chains and improve their own environmental performance characteristics. Málama’s products are benefited by a number of legislative mandates and industry initiatives:
USGBC’s LEED Certification Program Energy & resource efficiency; Indoor air quality
EPA’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Low environmental impact; Lifecycle analysis
USDA’s Bio-Preferred Purchasing Program High plant-based content; Domestic sourcing
DOE’s Challenge Home Program Energy efficiency; Indoor air quality; Durability
Our products eliminate the release of volatile organic compounds associated with producing urethane foams. They also sequester carbon. According to a study commissioned by the US Department of Agriculture and conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Tests (NIST), every pound of Studio BioFoam® sequesters 2.6 pounds of CO2e.
The use of AinaCore 2.0 SI structural insulation improves the energy efficiency of homes and buildings, and reduces the use of coal and natural gas traditionally used to generate electricity consumed by HVAC systems. Finally, Malama’s products are far more easily recycled, lowering environmental impact and providing much more sustainable lifecycle. That is why we are truly GREEN TO THE CORE®.
Our products are cost and performance competitive with petroleum-based PUR foams, but demonstrate significant human health and environmental benefits:
|High bending & sheer strength||Yields resilient durable products|
|High R value & moisture resistance||Ideal for insulating homes, cars, appliances|
|Uniform density and cell structure||Machines and surfaces accurately|
|Made from low-cost plant polyols||Price competitive with petro-based foams|
|Zero emissions (Berkley Analytical)||Safer work places and living environments|
|Fully recyclabe; compostable||Superior lifecycle performance|
|Carbon negative (USDA-NIST Study)||Every pound sequesters 2.6 lbs of CO2e|
