BOLON® GREEN

INNOVATION WHERE IT'S NEEDED MOST

A FUTURE WITHOUT FOOTPRINTS

Looking forward requires visionary thinking. A Future Without Footprints is our expression of this, pointing the way forward for Bolon, our partners and customers. Covering seven key areas, it commits us to creating products that respect the environment from several perspectives.

The seven areas covered by a future without footprints are examples of product and processinnovation at its best.

They are as follows:

  • PRODUCT RECYCLING
  • NO USE OF DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES
  • EXCEEDING LEGISLATION AND INDUSTRY STANDARDS
  • ANTICIPATING FUTURE LEGISLATION
  • PURCHASING PRACTICES
  • PRODUCTION USING RENEWABLE ENERGY
  • ENERGY RECOVERY FROM THE FLOOR AFTER USE

MORE THAN WORDS

green-art-slate.jpg

We have a clear sight of where we want to be in the years to come. However, we are determined to ensure that good intentions are backed up by concrete action. Only by doing so can we fulfil our commitment to exceed our responsibilities and current legal requirements.

MADE IN SWEDEN

As well as the obvious environmental benefits in terms of transport and logistics, this also allows us to have full control over production processes.

NO ADDED PHTHALATES

We have replaced phthalates with a safe, proven and tested softening agent – without compromising durability, comfort, sound absorption or general quality.

NEW RECYCLING PLANT

In 2014, our new onsite recycling plant was commissioned. As well as recycling our own waste, we will also recycle waste from other industries. All recycled material produced will be used in backing for our flooring.

ALWAYS MONITORING

In terms of waste and spill material, we continuously monitor our processes. In turn, this positively affects water and energy consumption.

GEOTHERMAL COOLING

We only use locally drawn groundwater, and no refrigerant, for cooling purposes. Our entire factory, warehouse, offices and every machine they contain are water-cooled. Even our heating pumps use local groundwater.

ADVANCED FILTER SYSTEM

The backing process our flooring goes through produces fumes. To deal with this, we have installed a filter cleaning system that removes 98% of fumes. Again, this step was taken on our own initiative rather than as a legal requirement.

Bolon Green Factory

BOLON® GREEN - LIFE CYCLE GREENOVATION

Bolon® Green is much more than a catchy phrase. It describes a holistic approach to our environmental responsibilities and a journey of innovation through a four-stage production process – a journey that starts long before flooring is produced and long after it has fulfilled its intended purpose.

CHOOSE BOLON WITH CONFIDENCE

Think of Bolon Green as our promise to you. If you show faith in our products, we guarantee that they have been developed and manufactured in accordance with the strictest environmental standards and that they exceed many current legislative requirements. Equipped with this knowledge, you can use Bolon flooring with confidence from both a quality and responsibility perspective.

RAW MATERIAL

Bolon is committed to using only the safest, most modern raw materials. By doing so, we can be sure that continuous improvement in terms of additives, stabilisers and plasticisers is achieved.

PRODUCT

The product we are proud to offer has durability Class 33 or 32, can be cared for with ecofriendly, neutral cleaning agents and holds all current Product and Process Certifications.

MANUFACTURING

After securing these raw materials, we use manufacturing processes that fulfil the requirements of ISO14000. In this way, meeting goals both long and short term helps us achieve continuous improvement.

AFTER

When our flooring has reached the end of its natural life, ensuring it is handled correctly is of great importance. This is a complex issue made even more complicated by widely varying local legislation, available technology and recycling infrastructure. However, through a continuous dialogue with our local partners and by passing on our experience of how we approach this issue in Sweden, we can assist them in identifying correct, safe disposal. Also, on a European level, the Vinyl Plus initiative allows us to monitor recycling processes closely and pass on knowledge globally.

ONLY

HIGH QUALITY

At Bolon, we only use the highest quality raw materials available, sourced from approved suppliers. From these suppliers, the material passes through refinement plants less than 250 kilometers from our production facility, further reducing our environmental footprint.

COMMITTED TO SAFE, MODERN PVC

PVC is one of the oldest synthetic materials with a long history in industrial production. It is also perhaps the world’s most rigorously tested and studied plastic. In its most modern, high quality form, it is produced economically with careful consideration made to use of resources and energy consumption in production processes. Many of these positive steps within PVC production are a result of two industry initiatives. The first of these, VINYL 2010, has developed to become VINYL PLUS. Read more at vinylplus.eu.

On top of all this, modern PVC is also recyclable, supports long product life and is extremely versatile – characteristics that are valued highly by architects, designers and planners.

Today, PVC’s excellent durability and ability to be processed, make it the material of choice for dozens of industries such as health care, IT, design, transport, textiles and construction.

One of our driving ambitions is to exceed current legislative requirements when producing our flooring. In terms of raw material, this expresses itself in our decision to use only safe, modern PVC.

NO ADDED PHTHALATES – STRIVING TO EXCEED LEGAL DEMANDS

Our company history proves that we are leaders rather than followers. A defining example of this can be found in our unilateral decision to eliminate the use of phthalates in the production of all our products.

The use of phthalate – a plastic softening agent – has long been a topic of discussion from a health and environmental perspective. Rather than wait and see what the consequences of this debate were, we chose to take the initiative. Taking direct contact with research and development experts in this field, Bolon created a new alternative and we are pleased and proud to report that every Bolon collection is now produced without the use of phthalates.

We have replaced phthalate with a safe, proven and tested softening agent – indeed, it is so well respected that it is

approved for use in children’s toys and is also food contact approved. Of course, the quality of our flooring has not been affected – durability, comfort, sound absorption and many other characteristics are unaffected by this development.

As well as the obvious environmental and health benefits of this development, there is also a positive side effect. Eliminating phthalates from our process allowed us to lower temperatures in the production process, contributing to reduced energy consumption.



Floor content

FLOORING CONTENTS

  • Bolon flooring has a PVC content of only 35% .
  • Of this 35%, 43% is natural gas/oil – this represents 15% of total content.
  • And, the plasticiser we use – which accounts for 19% of total content – is also natural gas/oil.
  • So, in total 34% (15% plus 19%) of our floorings’ contents is natural gas/oil.

DID YOU KNOW?

Europe leads the development and production of modern PVC.

In the not too distant future, PVC will be made from recycled and renewable resources.

The PVC used in our flooring only comes from leading European suppliers.
