What’s So Great about Green Industrial Flooring?

Decorative FloroQuartz with EcoBlend Blue (top) and Brown (bottom)

Green, ecofriendly industrial flooring is more than just a great way to earn LEED points for your building project.  Installing a recycled glass content epoxy floor is part of a global effort to improve the environment.  Consider these facts from the EPA*:

  • Americans generated 11.8 million tons of glass in the municipal solid waste (MSW) stream in 2009.
  • About 26 percent of the glass was recovered for recycling.
  • Glass recycling increased from 750,000 tons in 1980 to more than 3,000,000 tons in 2009.
  • Food, soft drink, beer, food, wine, and liquor containers represent the largest source of glass generated and recycled.
  • Glass in durable goods, such as furniture, appliances, and especially consumer electronics, round out the sources of postconsumer glass.
