Dal-Tile’s development of a mobile tile crusher drew the most reader interest last week (Dal-Tile Develops Mobile Tile Crusher to Further Sustainability Efforts): “Dal-Tile recently furthered its sustainability efforts by developing and implementing a mobile tile crusher for use at three of its production facilities. ‘While 97% of our manufactured floor tile meets our high quality standards, 3% does not, leading to waste,’ said Robert Hurt, director of environmental, health, and sustainability services for Dal-Tile Corp. ‘A team was engaged to determine a way to efficiently crush and recycle scrap tile, without which a facility would never be able to achieve our Zero Landfill initiative. To limit the environmental impact of this waste, we developed the mobile tile crusher—a crusher that travels to three of our locations on a routine schedule.’
“The customized solution reportedly significantly cut costs for disposing of scrap tile waste. The company conducted extensive research to ensure that the mobile system complied with environmental regulations and that the crushed material could be safely incorporated back into the manufacturing process.”
