Walls cleaning VOC's out of indoor air

Sustainability Aspects: Inside spaces like houses and offices contain high levels of VOC's. This gypsum, mainly made of recycled material, cleans them out of the air and locks them in permanently.


AirRenew™ Gypsum Board is for use in interior walls and ceilings and is specially designed to offer a healthier living and working environment by improving indoor air quality and offering peace of mind for generations. Unknown to many, the indoor air quality is often much worse then the air outside.

This board takes VOCs out of the air and converts them into safe inert compounds. Once they are captured in the board, they cannot be released back into the air. Tests showed that it is working permanently, also after multiple renovations and works better that ventilation of the space.
M2Tech® technology also improves indoor air quality by providing enhanced moisture and mold resistance.

The face and back paper used for Airrenew gypsum board consists of 100% recycled paper and can be used with most water based acrylic paints and breathable wallpaper
Synthetic or “by-product” or DSG gypsum produced from the desulphurization of flue gases at coal-fired power plants is used where sources are available. The total recycled content for these synthetic gypsum plants is 96%. In-plant scrap is recycled back into the process.

AirRenew can, like normal gypsum, be recycled.
