CertainTeed Gypsum is committed to resource conservation:
The face and back paper used for our gypsum board consists of 100% recycled paper.
Synthetic gypsum, derived as a by-product of the desulphurization of flue gases
at coal-fired power plants, is used at plants where sources are available.
The total recycled content is 99% for CertainTeed Gypsum wallboard products using
Several of our other plants are incorporating approximately 20% post-consumer gypsum
board construction waste into their production processes. In addition, in-plant
scrap is recycled back into the process.
Our gypsum board, finishing compound and joint tape manufacturing locations can
provide regional material coverage throughout North America.
Although green building rating systems do not currently address emissions for all
building materials and their effects on indoor air quality, finished CertainTeed
gypsum board products have very low reportable VOCs and will not affect indoor air
