Tandus Carpets: Recycling Waste Streams into Beautiful Flooring
Tandus is a really impressive company that creates carpet tiles out of various waste streams. The company started with vinyl carpet tile, and since then has been manufacturing carpets from numerous other waste streams. Tom from Tandus interviews on camera with the Buildaroo News Team about some of the impressive sources the company uses to manufacture its carpets.
5 different material sources that Tandus recycles into Carpet Tiles:
- grinding vinyl backed carpets, called ER3
- grinding up safety glass to derive Ethos which is used as a backing for their carpet tile
- pool lining
- waste from auto stamping plants
- packaging equipment that is no longer useful.
