Dow Corning accepted an invitation to join the Regenerative Network, a private consortium of leading green building product and service providers whose mission is to advance the green building industry and corporate sustainability objectives through collaboration with members such as architects, engineers and contractors.
Dow Corning provides silicon-based products and services for the construction industry to help enable architects and building professionals meet the growing demand for environmentally sustainable design and energy efficient construction techniques.
Examples include the use of silicon adhesives for tougher, more reliable built-in photovoltaic solar panels, and using silicon to extend the life of energy efficient LED bulbs and fixtures. The company’s products can contribute to earning LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits as administered by the U.S. Green Building Council.
