  SCHOTT PYRAN® Now Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM

SCHOTT announced that SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum Fire-Rated Glass-Ceramic has been Cradle to Cradle (C2C) CertifiedCM– Silver by McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC).

Cradle to Cradle® Certification is a rigorous eco-label that evaluates the impacts of a product and its manufacturing process throughout its lifecycle, including recyclability and toxicity to human and environmental health.

SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum uses innovative production processes that do not require the use of environmentally damaging heavy metals arsenic, antimony and barium.

“SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum is the only glass-ceramic in the world produced via the Microfloat process,” said Dan Poling, Sales Manager, Fire-Rated Glass for SCHOTT in North America. “Our process provides a superior surface quality and color rendition, while also removing heavy metals that could harm the environment. Really, everyone wins.”

Because SCHOTT PYRAN® Platinum fire-rated glass-ceramics are Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM-Silver they can contribute points towards a U. S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) building certification. The Innovation in Design Credit in any LEED Rating System can be earned if 2.5-5% of the building materials budget is used on Cradle to Cradle Certified products. Furthermore, C2C CertifiedCM products qualify for LEED points as Environmentally Preferable Materials (MR2.2) in the LEED for Homes Rating System.
