Roselle, NJ - CarpetCycle is closing the loop on carpet recycling with the creation of Quiet-Tech, an acoustic carpet insulation made from 90% post-consumer recycled materials. With nearly four billion pounds of carpet entering the waste stream each year, CarpetCycle is diverting waste from landfills by creating a sustainable, acoustic insulation solution for commercial buildings. Closed loop recycling is a key component of the new circular economy, striving to reduce landfill waste and conserve natural resources. 

"For more than 18 years, we've been removing, collecting and recycling carpet & post consumer building materials" said Sean Ragiel, founder and president of CarpetCycle. "But that was just the begining for us. We've come full circle by using diverted carpet to create a sustainable product. Quiet-Tech takes the used materials from the floor and puts it right back into the walls of commercial buildings - closing the loop on recycling."

Quiet-Tech features 90% post-consumer recycled materials (repurposed inorganic carpets, organic cotton clothes and PET fibers) that do not contain formaldehyde, making it easy to handle and safer for installation. In addition, it holds a Class A Fire rating, contains no VOCs and is mold and mildew resistant. 

Beyond its sustainability and safety benefits, Quiet-Tech insulation has an impressive acoustical performance and is easy to install.
