To Russia with Love: Sheffield based Social Enterprise is at Winter Olympics 2014

AECB member, Recovery Insulation (RI) is a Sheffield-based social enterprise that manufactures and distributes Inno-Therm® – a non-itch, high performance ‘eco’ thermal and acoustic insulation – made primarily from recycled cotton/denim industrial waste and jeans.

Inno-Therm® was recently installed for acoustic application for a major American broadcasting venue at the Winter Olympic XXII Games in Sochi. The insulation that was sent to Russia was first used at the London Games, 2012.  As part of the broadcasting company’s Green Initiative, to avoid creating unnecessary landfill, the Inno-Therm® used at the 2012 Games was re-used at Sochi.  Inno-Therm® acoustic is also being used for setting-up home recording studios in Sheffield and elsewhere in UK.

For every m2 of insulation sold, Recovery Insulation donates a percentage of profits to the education charity, the Schools and Homes Energy Education Project/Solar-Active – supporting renewable energy, fuel and money-saving activities in local/national schools and community projects.  Recovery Insulation has received funding from The Key Fund (part funded by the EDRF) to aid in the continual manufacturing and distribution process.  Recovery Insulation is also seeking investment to aid in developing marketing, employment and training opportunities.  For more information contact:, (0114 2587639 / 07968844891) or visit

Recovery Insulation has also been selected by Kevin McCloud as one of the 10 eco-innovation green heroes and will be exhibiting INNO-THERM at Grand Design Live in London from 3rd to 11th May 2014.  You can find details at this link.
