Ecore launches Redeux material take back program

Home News Ecore launches Redeux material take back program

LANCASTER, PA.—Rubber flooring maker Ecore has unveiled Redeux, a material take back program that furthers the company’s goal to reduce waste, reuse scrap and recycle products and samples, said Arthur Dodge, chairman and CEO.

Ecore customers now have the opportunity to send back old or remnant recycled rubber and cork products to the company’s manufacturing facility here. The reclaimed material will be made into new flooring, underlayments and industrial products.

“The Redeux process is unique in that Ecore’s products are already made from recycled materials at their inception and now are able to be ‘re-recycled’ again and again,” Dodge said.

Due to a proprietary process, no integrity is lost manufacturing new products from recycled materials, he noted. “Quality is held to high standards due to Ecore’s own recycling capabilities; nothing is outsourced,” which also reduces the use of fossil fuels by eliminating shipping to a separate rubber recycling company.

Customers must first submit an application confirming the material is free of foreign contaminates like stones, wood, concrete, drywall, etc. to have it accepted into the program. Accepted materials will be shipped to Ecore’s Lancaster facility where they will be sorted, shredded, cleaned and ground for the next generation of recycled rubber flooring, underlayment and industrial products. Materials will be taken back and recycled on a case-by-case basis.
