NaturaStone is the green choice

NaturaStone Environmental Overview

NaturaStone is an excellent performer in its intended application.
NaturaStone 6mm thinkness reduces quartz consumption by over 65% per slab as oppoised to standard 20mm e-stone.
The supply of quartz does not interfere with any confined aquifer and is from a recycled resource.
The polymer raw material supplier complies with the relevant environmental legislation.
Waste management procedures divert all waste into recyclable and reusable materials.
Solid waste is recycled, whilst polishing grinds are incorporated in concrete and render. There is no hazardous waste.
Energy consumption is below 20mj/sqm of product. (permitted level 100mj/sqm).
Dust emission is 0mg/sqm of product. (permitted level 300mg/sqm).
Styrene emission is below 0mj/sqm of product. (permitted level 2000mg/sqm).
Due to the naturw of the polymer very VOC levels of 0 are obtained.
Effluent water is recycled and contain less that 0mg/L of contaminants. (permitted level 40mg/L).
NaturaStone does not contain and prohibited substances.
Noise level from the production does not exceed 30db(A). (permitted level 70db(A).

NaturaStone environmental programs ensure a long product life cycle, whilst minimizing environmental loads and providing a sustainable product and manufacturing process which is the next generation in quartz surface technology, unmatched by any company or product in the world.
