How can we assist?

Our natural raw materials and recycled waste save CO₂


fermacell® fibre gypsum board is a homogeneous dry lining board. Our raw material mix is made of just three natural ingredients - since 1971:

  • Gypsum
  • Recycled paper fibres
  • Water


We are happy to say that our production process helps us become CO₂ negative. We use the following methods to help create a very strong, dense and resillient sheet material:

  • Flue Gas Gypsum – derived from power station waste produced during the process of reducing the power station waste
  • Paper fibres - derived from recycled paper and waste, as well as magazines and newspapers from domestic recycling 
  • Off cuts of board and sanding dust is fed back in the manufacturing process
  • The waste water from the production process is fed back in the production line

With our cradle to gate system, we are constantly optimising our recycling processes to achieve 100% recycling.




fermacell® offers a number of benefits compared to traditional materials inlcuding:

  • Up to 50 kg per cavity fixing and 30 kg per screw
  • 60 minutes fire resistance from single layer partiions up to 10 m high
  • Suitable for humid areas
  • Impact resistant
  • Sound insulating
  • Unique jointing system
  • Rigid structure
  • Rapid finishing
*CO₂ negative refers to production stages A1-A3 of EPD.
