Dal-Tile Announces Support for LEED Ruling
Dallas, TX, Nov. 7, 2012 -- Dal-Tile said it supports the latest LEED Interpretation Ruling (LIR) for Recycled Content set forth by the U.S. Green Building Council.
The ruling sets the standard for recycled content claims and documentation for LEED projects looking to achieve points for MRc4 Recycled Content, and aims to bring further transparency to green building through accurate recycled content reporting.
The Daltile and American Oleanbrands said they agree with the methodology specified in the new LIR, and that both brands have been calculating and reporting in the manner specified since receiving the first request for recycled material content for a LEED project back in 2004.
The Recycled Materials Content of each individual Daltile and American Olean tile product is calculated and reported based on the weights of the individual ingredients that are used to make the products, which vary by manufacturing plant, the company said.
