Leading European carpet manufacturer Desso is delighted to be returning to Ecobuild for its third consecutive year.
It has been an impressive year of innovation for the Cradle to Cradle® manufacturer having launched its first Cradle to Cradle® certified carpet backing, EcoBase®, achieving Silver Certification for an entire carpet tile product. Desso also developed Refinity®, an innovative separation technique enabling the yarn and other fibres to be separated from the backing ensuring that the Cradle to Cradle® philosophy of continual reuse can take place.
However, Cradle to Cradle® is only possible if materials are captured for recycling and reprocessing which led the forward thinking manufacturer to introduce a carpet tile Take BackTM Programme. Through the development of the Take BackTM process, material to landfill will be reduced at an ever growing rate. Most of the components in a carpet tile are oil derivatives and this recycling initiative will help ease the burden on the world's prime energy value raw material, which is in decline.
Cradle to Cradle® carpet manufacturing lies at the heart of a wide range of measures implemented by Desso to ensure its products promote a positive impact on people and the environment.
Desso will be located at stand S149 at Ecobuild 1st March to 3rd March 2011.
