Our products are completely recyclable and backed by an environmental guarantee. Encouraging others to participate in the shift to safe, sustainable practices and social responsibility in product manufacturing is more than our job - it's ingrained in our culture. Shaw Contract recycles up to 100 million lbs (45 million kg) of carpet annually. Recycling for Eco Solution Q, Solution Q Extreme and other reclaimed nylon fiber is managed through our portfolio of internal recycling options. Ultimately, this creates a high-purity post-consumer material that can be used in a broad range of applications from carpet to raw materials for other industries.
Recycling for ESQ, SQE and other reclaimed nylon 6 and 6,6 fiber is managed through our portfolio of internal recycling options. The addition of our Evergreen Ringgold recycling facility provides added capacity to manage reclamation and recycling for PET products as well.
The Shaw Reclaim-to-Energy (Re2E) facility is fueled by reclaimed carpet materials from both internal manufacturing operations and post-consumer carpet collections. Re2E converts up to 84 million pounds of reclaimed carpet materials into steam and electricity each year.
In addition to supplying power to our manufacturing operations, Re2E helps fuel the industry reclamation network, providing a solution for reclaimed carpet from other manufacturers which is unsuitable for processing through our other recycling avenues.
Using PET beverage bottles, Clear Path recycles 160 million pounds annually into carpet ﬁber. This saves 1.9 trillion BTUs of energy each year compared to manufacturing solely from virgin materials. That’s enough primary energy to power more than 20,000 U.S. homes per year.
