Are waste materials from the production process used in the production of porcelain stoneware?

For the production of some porcelain stoneware articles, waste with no thermal process occurred from the production process is used. This allows to reduce, without changing or worsening the technical parameters of the finished products, the use of the new basic components reducing the costs for raw materials and for transporting them to the factory. The use of recycled material during the course is certified by LEED certification, which certifies the low environmental impact of Italon tiles. The company Italon respects the environment and believes that architecture and ecology are inextricably linked; for this reason many items of Italon porcelain stoneware are certified according to the LEED standard.
