Shaw Forms Recycling Partnership with Encina Development Group

The Woodlands, TX, March 31, 2023-Encina Development Group, a producer of ISCC+ circular chemicals from end-of-life plastics, announced a new recycling partnership with Shaw Industries, a global flooring manufacturer. Under the agreement, Shaw will provide Encina with more than two million pounds of waste materials from its carpet manufacturing processes annually. 

This effort will reduce Shaw’s greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint while contributing to its long-standing sustainability commitment, which encompasses its Cradle to Cradle design programs that have been in place for more than 20 years. Nearly 90% of the products Shaw produces are Cradle to Cradle Certified, meaning they have been assessed for material health, product circularity, clean air and climate change, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness. The partnership will contribute to Shaw's overall sustainability goals and commitment to reducing waste.
