Carpet producer rewarded for recycling achievements

Global – Carpet major Desso has become the first carpet tile manufacturer in the world to receive ‘Cradle to Cradle Gold level’ certification for its recycling achievements. Desso’s new carpet tile collection contains calcium carbonate from local drinking water companies, which is claimed to be ‘100% recyclable’. In addition, the carpet tiles contain Econyl, a nylon made from recovered waste materials including post-consumer yarn waste from Desso’s Refinity plant.

Desso’s managing director Roland Jonkhoff comments: ‘Through the vision and hard work of our people and stakeholders we are delighted to have reached this important new milestone in our circular economy journey. Alongside this, the innovations that are required on our path to becoming a C2C company continue to contribute to our commercial success.’
