Natural raw materials

More than 90% of the raw materials used to manufacture Coverlam tiles are of natural origin, with preference given to nearby suppliers, importing as little as possible to avoid CO2 emissions caused by transport.90% de las materias primas que conforman las piezas de Coverlam son de origen natural, priorizando entre aquellas materias de cercanía y minimizando las importaciones para evitar emisiones de CO2 en el transporte.

It is also ensured that these raw materials come from sustainable mining operations and are of the highest quality, free of impurities. Furthermore, the compounds used in the manufacturing process contain a high percentage of recycled material.minas sostenibles y de la más alta calidad, exenta de impurezas. Además, los compuestos que se utilizan en su elaboración cuentan con altos porcentajes de material reciclado.

Coverlam carece totalmente de traza alguna de compuestos orgánicos volátiles (COV). Durante su utilización no se emitirá ningún COV en ninguna condición de uso.

As well as being a very important architectural and construction element, consumo de materias primas de cantera, en los espesores de 3,5 y 5,6 mm, es de 2 a 3 veces inferior al consumo que se da con cualquier tipo de producto similar de espesor convencional. Gracias a su espesor y peso reducido se optimizan los metros cuadrados por trayecto, lo que ayuda a reducir las emisiones de CO2 y NOx.

ADVANTAGES

At COVERLAM, we are committed to the environment. From the selection of raw materials to the manufacturing of our ceramic products, we prioritise sustainability and eco-efficiency. We constantly work to reduce our environmental impact and promote responsible practices throughout our supply chain. Together, we build a greener and more sustainable future.

01.ZERO WASTE

All the water used in the manufacturing process is recycled internally and reused in the production facilities, while guaranteeing that no elements that could impact the environment are discharged.

02.LOW PERCENTAGE OF RESPIRABLE CRYSTALLINE SILICA

Thanks to technological advances, Coverlam has managed to reduce the amount of silica in the composition of its tiles, without diminishing their performance. The silica content in Coverlam Top countertops is currently less than 11%.in Coverlam Top countertopsis currently less than 11%.

03.H&Cslabs

The application of the H&CTiles treatment to Coverlam offers major environmental benefits. When used outdoors it helps to reduce environmental pollution and endows the tile with the ability to self-clean, while for indoor use it provides antibacterial properties

04.SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE

Given its concern about sustainable architecture, Coverlam contributes to improving the energy efficiency of buildings by incorporating the new LEED standards throughout the life cycle of its products, from the design phase to final installation.
In addition, it provides the documents needed to confirm compliance with the requirements of the sustainability assessment system in construction projects (BREEAM®).

05.ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY ENERGY CONSUMPTION

Coverlam has a strategic plan for the use of energy. Thanks to this approach, there has been a gradual reduction in the amount of energy consumed, and the necessary actions are being taken to continue cutting energy consumption. All this is achieved, among other practices, thanks to a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) system, an Integrated Energy Management System and more efficient machinery that consumes less energy.

CERTIFICATES

Coverlam has various environmental certifications that allow us to identify, evaluate and minimise the impact of productive activity on the environment.
