Catherine Mohr: The tradeoffs of building green
If I wasn't so involved in this idea myself I would almost believe your assumptions. Spray Foam is Dangerous and absolutely careless for anyone to use in residential situations. Saying that blue jean fibers are lower that spray foams, also total BS, This area of evaluation is far from being accurate and we should refrain from quoting these numbers till more research is done.

Haiti has the opportunity to start over, should we not look at all the alternatives, including those best suited to overcoming Global Warming. Light weight composites are ready for the challenge fully capable to reduce building costs. Check out a few a decide for yourself. http://StyroHomeNEWS.blogspot.com
