A green technology
All CASATUA products are manufactured in the ABK GROUP’s factories in the heart of the Emilia ceramic district in northern Italy. The “Made in Italy” label stands for the best in manufacturing quality as well as exceptional green credentials and environmental sustainability.
For years now, ABK GROUP has always adopted robust and advanced environmental measures in its production processes and is committed to low emission levels, 100 % water recycling, reuse of all processing residues and reduced energy consumption through heat recovery and transfer processes.
Porcelain stoneware is an inert, 100 % recyclable material. A CASA TUA product is a doubly sustainable choice because the ceramic bodies have been certified as Ecobody since 2013, which means they contain at least 40 % high-quality raw materials recycled from other production processes. Products made from Ecobody qualify for LEED credits (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).
LOW EMISSION LEVELS
The emissions from ABK GROUP’s production plants remain consistently below the limits permitted by current regulations
Zero water is discharged into the environment: at ABK GROUP water is entirely reused in the industrial process.
REUSE OF PROCESSING RESIDUES
All processing residues of glazes and raw materials are reused in the manufacturing cycle.
REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Reduction in energy consumption through devices for recovering heat from plants.
More than 80% of the ABK GROUP’s product range is produced from Eco-Body, which contains a minimum of 40% material recycled from other production processes. For this reason, all the group’s major ceramic collections produced since 2013 qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credits and are suitable for sustainable building projects.
