What are you proud of when it comes to the recycling program at Grodan?
"Grodan is a global company; we currently have a near 100% recycling rate in western Europe, where our products are remanufactured into bricks. In North America, we send about 10,000 tons per year to the compost sector. Our Brick Re-Manufacturing Program in the EU - NWE Recycling Program - is a tremendous success with a near 100% participation and recycling rate. I think the reason that is has been so successful is that all the major stakeholders in the agricultural sector work collaboratively throughout all stages of the recycling process. This includes: Grodan as the growing media manufacturer, the growers themselves, recyclers, brick manufacturers as purchasers of the recycled products, and the regulators. They all work together and bring in resources to build a sustainable recycling infrastructure."
