Carpet conversion

  • Comment

With estimates that 'trim' waste from UK carpet manufacturers is currently in excess of 4,000 tonnes a year, Burmatex is the latest big player to propose a solution. It has spent more than ú350,000 on developing a four-stage recycling plant that will allow old carpet tiles to be reused.

The Ethos process converts carpet waste to fine powder, which can be used in applications as diverse as commercial filler in carpet-tile backing and fertiliser.
