Zeftron Nylon Certified Cradle To Cradle | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), a third party consultancy founded by architect William McDonough and chemist Dr. Michael Braungart, is the entity that certifies products Cradle to Cradle™. The Zeftron nylon product has received Silver certification from MBDC.
 
Zeftron nylon, a premium branded nylon 6 yarn system manufactured by Shaw Industries for external commercial carpet manufacturing customers, is a yarn system that is 100% closed-loop recyclable at the end of its useful life. All Zeftron nylon yarns come standard with a minimum 25% recycled content in every color.
 
“We are proud to announce that Zeftron nylon has achieved MBDC’s Cradle to Cradle™ Silver Certification, making it a commercial interiors product that demonstrates sustainability and continuous improvement,” said Jay Bolus, vice president of technical operations for MBDC. “This certification lends further credibility to Zeftron nylon’s environmentally intelligent design.”
 
MBDC’s Cradle to Cradle™ certification process closely examines the use of environmentally safe and healthy materials, design for recycling, water and energy efficiency, and social responsibility strategies.
 
“We have always worked to make a product that leaves little or no environmental footprint,” said Tim Blount, business leader for Zeftron nylon. “Every decision regarding manufacturing, product attributes and complete life cycle responsibility work towards this goal, from manufacturing only nylon 6 products to our simple to use commercial carpet recycling program, 6ix Again. We will continue to bring innovation to the marketplace as an industry leader in closed-loop manufacturing and recycling.”
 
Products carrying the Cradle to Cradle™ certification are included within U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building Rating System and can contribute to earning points for Innovation in Design.
