The Tandus Flooring Environmental Center in Dalton, Ga., is now certified through Scientific Certification Systems (SCS). Certification means the reclamation center is guaranteed to conform with Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) Guides for the Use of Environmental Claims, according to Tandus.

“Because of the enormous amount of confusion in our industry regarding environmental claims, we will continue to invest the necessary time and resources to provide customers with third party certification regarding the environmental aspects of our processes and products,” said Glen Hussmann, president and ceo, Tandus Flooring.

Tandus said it has reclaimed and recycled more than 170 million pounds of flooring and manufacturing waste into flooring since 1994. Floor products produced through reclamation are identified as ER3, with more than 8 million sq. ft. of ER3 products annually.
