In the fight against global warming, reducing CO2 emissions is seen as the first line of attack. By improving the efficiency of heating applications, thermal insulation has an important role to play. Skamol A/S in Denmark specializes in the development, manufacture and sale of thermal insulating materials for heat intensive industries, passive fire protection, fireplace enclosures and mould prevention. Since being taken over by a Nordic hedge fund in 2012, it has experienced rapid growth. At the beginning of November, work started on the construction of a new calcium silicate manufacturing plant in Poland that will help it achieve even greater growth in the coming years.
