Sustainability

Eurocell is at the leading edge of PVC-U sustainability, with a whole host of advanced developments that deliver exceptional environmental performance.

The company’s £2.5m recycling plant in Derbyshire can process more than ten thousand used window frames each week. As much of that recycled material as possible is utilised in the manufacture of products. On top of that, its manufacturing plants re-use almost all production waste, adding up to about six thousand tonnes of recycled PVC-U every year. Add the fact that waste is sourced elsewhere too, and it means that just about zero Eurocell manufacturing waste goes to landfill.

PVC-U windows can actually be recycled and made into new products up to ten times. Since the average PVC-U window lasts 35 years (source: BRE), you’re looking at literally hundreds of years of re-use with minimal environmental impact.

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) Green Guide to Specification gave PVC-U an ‘A’ rating for residential construction projects and an ‘A+’ rating for commercial buildings. So when you order Eurocell products from us, you can be sure that they’ll meet or exceed all of your sustainability needs.
