DESSO® returns to Ecobuild in 2011 after another impressive year of manufacturing innovation

28 February 2011

Stand S149
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.
