Why LogixICF is "greener" than other foam insulating alternatives?

The LogixICF building materials that Green Building Solutions uses in our client projects is "greener" than many of the alternatives on the market used for insulating homes to achieve a higher "R-factor."

How can this be if both materials achieve a similar "R-factor?" The answer lies in the environmental impact of each product long before it is ever used in construction, back at the time of original manufacture.

LogixICF building materials incorporate an expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) which is much friendlier to the environment than extruded polystyrene (XPS) and spray polyurethan foam (SPF) insulating products that are commonly used in commercial and home insulation projects. When it comes to "going green" not all insulating "foams" are created equal, as the following article details.
