DuPont™ Achieves ZERO Landfill Status with Corian® solid surfaces, Zodiaq® quartz surfaces and Tyvek® weatherization systems.
DuPont™ has achieved zero landfill status in its Building Innovations business by reducing, reusing and recycling manufactured by-products and waste at manufacturing sites globally. After three years of focused effort, DuPont™ Building Innovations has become completely landfill free, reducing its environmental footprint from 81 million pounds of landfill waste annually to zero.
By completely eliminating landfill - not just reducing it - DuPont™ Building Innovations has created a new standard for environmental stewardship. The Drive to Zero project was comprehensive in other ways, too. Manufacturing by-products, unusable raw materials, product scrap, construction debris and even cafeteria waste were all within scope at the project's 15 global manufacturing and partner sites.
