Schott CERAN Makes For an Environmental Cooktop

July 27, 2011

Schott's CERAN, a glass-ceramic for cooktop applications, has been validated arsenic- and antimony-free through UL Environment’s Environmental Claims Validation program.
 
CERAN glass-ceramic is the first cooktop glass-ceramic on the market made without the use of arsenic or antimony. These two substances are commonly used to smooth and reduce bubbles during the conventional manufacturing process of glass-ceramic panels. By refining its manufacturing process, Schott will eliminate more than 180 tons of arsenic and antimony per year, reducing concerns about the improper disposal and run-off from these substances.
 
“Our customers are asking for sustainable products to meet consumer demand and many manufacturers are responding with environmental claims, but Schott is the first company to back up those claims with third-party validation,” said Karen Elder, marketing manager at Schott HomeTech. “Validation from an independent and respected source like UL Environment highlights the innovations in Schott’s manufacturing process, which are the result of our commitment to research and development. Schott is dedicated to providing top quality, validated products to help develop a green building industry consumers can trust, as this verification shows.”
