Timeworn Porcelain Tile Collection
This collection is part of the first steps of the investment plan commenced by SAXA GRES SPA becoming the first Italian porcelain production using a 'Cradle to Cradle', also known as closed loop system.
In Europe this system is called Circular Economy, where the urban solid and organic garbage are recycled to produce biogas to fuel the ovens. The remaining waste, after being treated, is recycled and entirely used for the tiles body production, mixed with clay extracted from their quarry and ceramic sludge deriving from the processing of the nearby ceramic sanitary district.
According to the latest estimates the new Biodigester will be fully operational by 2021.
 
We are also introducing an innovative dry installation system used for driveways, which will lead to a huge save of the whole project cost.
Led by this new production process about 24” x 24” x 1” 5/8 thickness porcelain tile (Cm 60 x 60 x 3), we will be launching the following exclusive items:
- The typical Rome public floor driveway “sanpietrini”: cubic timeworn porcelain pieces in thickness 2” 5/8 on following sizes:
4” x 4” x 2” 5/8 (Cm 10 x 10 x 6,5)
8” x 8” x 2” 5/8 (Cm 20 x 20 x 6,5)
4” x 8” x 2” 5/8 (Cm 10 x 20 x 6,5)
- Window sills and swimming pool edge with thickness almost 2”
- Curb sidewalk with 2” 5/8 thickness in different lengths.
 
 
Timeworn Porcelain Stone have a hand-chiseled surface reproducing the timeworn look that recalls the historical venetian floor.
It is available in two sizes and for different purposes - exteriors and interior patio installations:
32" x 32" x 3/4 (Cm 80x80x2)
24" x 24" x 1" 5/8 (Cm 60x60x3) for dry installation system on driveway reducing a lot the whole project cost.
