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 made by a Cradle to Cradle or also known as closed loop system. In Europe this system is called Circular Economy, where solid urban and organic garbage are recycled to produce biogas for the ovens and the remaining waste, after a subsequent treatment, is recycled and entirely used for the tiles body production mixed with additional clay from their own Italian quarry (not imported from Ukraine as almost all others italian manufacturers do) and a part of ceramic sludge deriving from the processing of the nearby ceramic sanitary district.
According to the latest estimates the new Biodigester will be fully operational in 2021.
