|Waste recycling (Percentage of waste recycled %)
||All the packages are destined to the collection and re-utilization:
- pallets are used / reused until no longer usable with remaining sent to landfill (this number is minimal);
- Shrink wrap and strapping material is minimal and waste goes to the landfill;

|Tests in accordance with ISO and ANSI standards
||Suitable to the use, as they are: hard, resistant, (tests performed in accordance with ISO 13006 and ANSI 137.1 standards), hygienic, non-combustible and fire-resistant. All the stated technical specifications are constantly verified and confirmed by internal tests and external certifications.
||The rubble coming from the demolition of the tiles is “inert” material (non-reactive, chemically and physically stable, and resistant to prolonged exposure also under extreme heat, hygrometric and chemical conditions). The rubble from the demolition of tiles can be deposited in the environment without particular hazards and can also be used in the preparation of foundation, roadbed, etc.
