Sustainability

Aristech Surfaces continually strives to improve our energy and water efficiency, landfill diversion, and air quality, using performance metrics we measure and report. Recent and ongoing environmental initiatives include conversion to LED lighting at our plants and offices, proactive recycling of office and industrial materials, high-efficiency motor upgrades to machine drives, industrial water filtration and recycling systems and thermal oxidizing units with heat recovery to reduce VOC emissions.

Aristech is a member of the US Green Building Council, and the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care®, pledged to improve and report our progress on the health and safety of our employees, our communities and our environment.

Our domestically-produced Avonite Surfaces® Solid Surface and STUDIO Collection® design resin product lines each provide a LEED v4 compliant Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Health Product Declaration (HPD).  All these products are SCS Indoor Advantage Gold™ certified, Living Building Challenge Red List Free, and NSF certified for Food Zone 1 use.  Certain colors have certified recycled content of 16% (Avonite Surfaces®) and 40% (STUDIO Collection®). In addition to LEED, these products comply with material requirements for WELL Building Standard, Living Building Challenge and other green building standards.

You can access transparency documentation and certifications in our Technical Libraries through the links below, or on Mindful Materials, UL SPOT,  SCS Global Services and other green product databases.
