Grodan places a high priority on sustainable business. And environmental management is an integral part of Grodan’s sustainable business policy. As part of this, Grodan has set up a professional (country-specific) recycling service for its clients.
This service is designed to guarantee that used stone wool products are recycled responsibly. During the recycling process, the stonewool is separated from the plastic. Any residual plant matter is removed and residual drainage water is carefully separated, so as to prevent it from leaking into surface waters. In a low-energy process, Grodan then recycles the used stone wool into raw material for the production of new stone wool products or other products, such as bricks for construction. This re-use of resources from end of life products, not only diverts waste from landfill but also reduces the consumption of new raw materials, thereby reducing our impact on the environment.
Any grower using this recycling service for the disposal of production waste is entitled to use Grodan’s European Eco-label, the European Union’s environment-friendly label for non-food products, to profile itself as a grower in full compliance with all provisions of environmental law.
