In addition to a REACH statement and raw materials declaration, we have also carried out a ZZS study. This to guarantee that the product is safe for people and nature. Due to the unique production and purification method this result can be guaranteed for all GreenMatter products. Our REACH statement and raw materials declaration give clients more certainty about the origin and processing of raw materials and the impact on people and the environment. In order to offer even more certainty we comply with ISO 9001: Quality certificate, ISO 14001: Environment certificate and OHSAS 18001: Safety certificate with the production of GreenMatter products. In addition, our production has a reduced footprint and reduces the amount of waste that has to be incinerated.
When choosing for recycled, circular products, it is advisable to request these certificates in order to have certainty about the origin and application of responsible products.
Our products are made from recycled artificial grass fibres and are glass fibre reinforced and UV resistant. The expected lifespan is at least 50 years and after the end of life the products can be 100% recycled by our production partner Lankhorst. Circularity is a spearhead of our GreenMatter initiative and therefore the composition of our products is 100% recyclable. By carefully designing the products, metal and plastic are separated in the system. This results in a simple separation of materials and guarantees that all components can be recycled without additional pollution and CO2 footprint.
Lankhorst, the producer of GreenMatter products, has joined More. More is an EU-wide organisation that registers how much recyclate is incorporated into new products. For the registration of 2018 volumes, Lankhorst has received the MORE label of 2019. Lankhorst maintains this annually, so that they can demonstrate with reliable data how the Dutch plastics industry is committed to sustainability. MOnitoringRecyclatesforEurope supports the circular ambitions of the plastics industry. It collects data on the volume of recycled polymers used by manufacturers for new plastic products”.
