Commitment to the environment
Cosentino is committed to the planet and its biodiversity. The manufacturing process of HybriQ® produces zero water waste, which means not a single drop of water or chemicals are poured into our rivers or oceans. When it comes to the electric energy used in the manufacturing of Silestone, the process uses energy from natural sources, which minimizes its carbon footprint. In addition, 99 per cent of the water used in the manufacturing of Silestone is recycled, thanks to a circular system of continuous filtration that allows every single drop to be utilized. Finally, at least 20 per cent of the material used in the composition of Silestone’s HybriQ® technology is recycled. The result? A superior product that doesn’t put pressure on the environment. Now that is something you can feel good about!
