Armstrong Earns Top Project Award from Environment + Energy Leader

Lancaster, PA, July 21, 2021-Armstrong Flooring is proud to announce that its product redesign project, Product Waste Reduction though Circularity Improvement, received a Top Project of the Year Award in the Environment + Energy Leader Awards program. 

The Environment + Energy Leader Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, and in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.

Armstrong Flooring redesigned the felt-backed vinyl sheet flooring product, which has been manufactured in Stillwater, Oklahoma since 1987. The redesign, which was completed in August 2020, replaced the traditional felt backing with a fiberglass scrim. By changing the backing, the company was able to achieve a key project objective-reduce, if not eliminate, process waste. As part of the project, the company installed a new granulator to recycle sheet flooring scrap. By the end of 2020, the redesign project eliminated approximately 150 tons of sheet flooring process waste being sent to the landfill and improved the plant’s overall annual waste recovery rate.

For nearly a decade, the Environment + Energy Leader Awards have celebrated excellence in the world of environmental, sustainability and energy management.
