GECA licensee Regupol champions the use of recycled materials
GECA is proud to be a Supporting Partner of the premier business event for the waste, recycling and resource recovery sector, Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE).
GECA will be exhibiting at stand A37, promoting our wonderful licensees along with our suite of sustainable solutions. One of our licensees, Regupol, continues to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to reducing waste and highlighting the value of recycled materials.
Regupol Australia has been supplying recycled, sustainable flooring solutions in the region for over 25 years. Regupol is one of the world’s largest users of recycled rubber; reducing, recycling and reusing it in the manufacture of a broad range of rubber flooring and acoustic underlay products.
Regupol has certified many of their recycled rubber flooring and soundproofing products under GECA’s Floor Coverings (GECA 25-2011 v2) standard. When a product is certified against this standard, consumers can be sure that the product has been assessed to meet environmental, health and social impact criteria. GECA certification has also led to several lucrative Green Star contracts for Regupol, including award-winning commercial projects like Energex in Queensland.
Regupol is passionate about crafting quality products using materials upcycled from post-consumer and pre-consumer waste. Their everroll range of recycled rubber flooring, for example, combines high recycled rubber content and selected post-consumer EPDM rubber. Everroll offers architects and designers a sustainable flooring option, along with the benefits of durability, sound absorption, slip resistance, modular designs, aesthetic appeal and comfort.
To maintain their high level of product quality, Regupol actively seeks out sustainable manufacturers of rubber, PU foams, EPDM rubber, cork and other sustainable materials that make up their product ranges. No production waste is landfilled – all off-cuts and remnants are recycled and reused. In the last 40 years alone, the volume of processed, shredded post-consumer tyre waste used in Regupol products has exceeded two million cubic tonnes.
