SCHOTT PYRAN® Now Cradle to Cradle CertifiedCM|
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
