Grenite Environmental Product Declaration Issued

Posted on 28 May 2013 by cradmin

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Grenite engineered stone by Saint-Gobain was issued. Compliant with ISO 14025, EPDs are internationally recognized, standardized tools that detail the environmental impact of a product. The move is made to help architects and designers better identify environmental impacts from building materials when making purchasing decisions. To determine the product’s eligibility for an EPD, UL Environment tested one square meter of the Grenite Recycled Refractory (Birch Prada) and the Grenite Recycled Slag (Anaconda Black) line in accordance with EPD product category rules (PCRs). UL Environment develops EPDs in five steps, including verifying the product lifecycle assessment (LCA) meets requirements defined in the PCRs. The EPD presents the results of the LCA along with additional information about the product’s performance and other sustainability attributes.

Saint Gobain Donates Countertops To Charity

Posted on 19 December 2012 by cradmin

Saint-Gobain donated Grenite engineered stone countertops, along with some green building expertise, to YouthBuild Philadelphia Charter School and the Akron Summit Community Action YouthBuild Program. The programs help young people from low-income backgrounds earn high school diplomas while also picking up job skills while building sustainable and affordable housing.

YouthBuild Philadelphia built a LEED-certified two-family home, in which Grenite, in the color Birch Prada, was installed for countertops and an island. The Akron Youthbuild project was a platinum-certified split-level five-bedroom home, which also used donated Grenite countertops.
