Environmental Qualities

As recycled cardboard and safe industrial waste are used as major components of CeramiBoard® the product can be claimed to be environmentally friendly. Furthermore CeramiBoard® itself can be recycled at the end of its useful life, by grinding the product into a powder and blending this powder with the standard chemical mixture when manufacturing new product. However, as a result of the high strength of the product, an in-use life considerably longer than for standard cardboard can be expected. For example most building products remain in place for a long time, often 20-30 years or more. Thus, in practical terms any requirement to recycle CeramiBoard® is likely to be of relatively small scale compared to the output of new product. It may also be noted that many current widely used building products are not normally readily recycled e.g. concrete, fibre cement and plasterboard.
