Tandus Centiva honors Chattanooga Airport for sustainability

Home Press Release Tandus Centiva honors Chattanooga Airport for sustainability

Dalton—Strengthening the sustainability goal of Chattanooga, Tandus Centiva recognized Chattanooga Airport with an award for recycling 47,000 pounds of Powerbond back into new material.

With over 640,000 people traveling through the Chattanooga Airport campus annually, the facility needed flooring that was beautiful, durable, long lasting and sustainable. With Tandus Centiva Powerbond installed for the past 23 years, the decision to reinstall Powerbond was unanimous.

“Sustainability wise, the airport is trying to become the greenest airport in the world, and in doing so, we wanted a product we can put down on the floor, keep it for 23 years and at the end of those 23 years, be able to recycle it,” said John Naylor, the airport’s vice president of planning & development.

Helping Chattanooga build on sustainability, all of the Powerbond that was removed from the airport terminal was brought back to Tandus Centiva’s third-party certified reclamation facility 21 miles away. It was closed-loop recycled into new flooring including ER3 Modular tile that is now in the airport’s LEED certified Wilson Air Center.

“Tandus Centiva is honored to recognize Chattanooga for its commitment to environmentally responsible products and practices. We value the partnership we have developed,” said Erin Istanbulluoglu, director of environmental & social stewardship.
