CertainTeed Gypsum is committed to sustainability. Our 14 gypsum board manufacturing facilities, located throughout North America, provide regional material coverage and operate with a responsible and environmentally conscious ethic that includes reclamation, preservation of natural resources, recycling and waste management.
The face and back paper used for our gypsum boards consists of 100% recycled paper. Where sources are available, synthetic or “by-product” gypsum from the desulphurization of flue gases at coal-fired power plants is used. Currently three of our manufacturing plants (Carrollton, Kentucky; Moundsville, West Virginia and Toronto, Ontario) use 100% synthetic gypsum. The total recycled content for these synthetic gypsum plants is 96%.
Easi-lite boards can contribute to LEED building credits and contain up to 99% total recycled content.
