CDI Solutions was recently introduced to the Crossville Take-Back program while taking a tour of the plant facility. We were amazed when we discovered the scale of their recycling effort. We were told that during a previous plant tour a guest suggested that there was a way to recycle post consumer tile and that they new a way to do it. That was all Crossville needed to get to work figuring out how to make it happen.
Crossville developed a proprietary recycling process to turn the fired tile back into the ceramic powder used in manufacturing new tile, Crossville launched a truly innovative recycling effort that would allow them to become the first-ever net consumer of tile waste—meaning they recycle more than they produce.
