green terrazzo



Terrazzo flooring has a rich history that dates back over 1500 years. It is one of the original recycled products, created centuries ago by Venetian workers who used waste chips from slab marble processing. Today, terrazzo flooring is still a popular choice due to its durability and low maintenance, often lasting the lifetime of buildings. This longevity makes it a sustainable flooring option.

Terrazzo is also an environmentally friendly choice for construction projects. It can contribute to the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) credits for new construction and to achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification – a globally recognized green building rating system.

This is because it has recycled content from its post-consumer glass composition, natural marble stone, low emissions from the epoxy matrix, and regional manufacturing characteristics of the epoxy matrix. Due to its composition, terrazzo does not contain any VOCs (volatile organic compounds).

Depending on how other materials used on the project contributed toward these credits, terrazzo as a flooring option could help contribute toward as many as 5 LEED® points.



In summary, terrazzo flooring is an aesthetically pleasing and durable option for building owners, with a long history of sustainability. It is also a great choice for environmentally-conscious construction projects, with the potential to contribute to USGBC credits.

Thanks to modern technology, we now have the option to produce epoxy terrazzo for sustainable and green architecture.

Our commitment to sustainable practices extends beyond just the products we offer. Our manufacturing processes are designed to minimize waste and reduce carbon footprint. We use advanced equipment and techniques to ensure that our products are produced with the highest levels of precision and quality while still adhering to eco-friendly standards.
