Subject: Recycled content insulation

We are in the process of contructing a Recycling Center Administration
facility (40 x100) steel (pre-fab building) & are trying to incorporate
"green" building materials whenever possible. We need R-19 insulation. W/
this type of building & our work crews, we can't use blown or sprayed
insulation. Apparently cellulose insulation is not available in rolls. SO -
who mfgs recycled content fiberglass insulation that meets the EPA guidelines?
We've contacted the only co listed in the Recycled Products Guide & have had
no response. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
