TOTO Partners with Crossville for New Green Initiative

June 27, 2011

TOTO has formed a strategic partnership with Crossville, Inc., which has developed proprietary systems for processing pre-consumer sanitary ware, fired tile and filtrate waste back into powder that is used in the manufacture of new tile. The new alliance will help TOTO expand its sustainability initiatives at its manufacturing facility in Morrow, GA.

“There’s no ‘silver bullet’ when it comes to reducing a facility’s carbon footprint,” said Bill Strang, senior VP of operations at TOTO. “However, ‘silver buckshot’ proves a practical conceptual model. That is, numerous incremental projects and processes combine synergistically to significantly reduce a company’s environmental impact. At TOTO, we are eliminating the term ‘waste’ from our corporate vocabulary through a series of strategic initiatives that reduce, recycle, reuse, repurpose and re-buy the environmental resources that we utilize in the manufacture of our water- and energy-saving premium plumbing products. We have nearly attained carbon- and water-neutral status at our five North American plants.”

Crossville introduced its new EcoCycle recycling processes at the 2011 NeoCon, which both companies attended.
