AS a leading local manufacturer of tiles, sanitaryware and baths, Ceramic Industries have embarked on a number of programmes to minimise the raw materials used in its products, and thereby increase the eco-friendly nature of its products. The company’s range of EcoTec products have been designed and introduced to supply the market with products that meet global standards. Production improvements include water recycling, investment in solar power, invested in heat exchangers, improved the cycle times on kilns and a reduction in the amount of product packaging.
Extensions to the range of Eco friendly products will be rolled out at both its red and white body porcelain tile factories before the end of June 2021, with further innovation happening across other manufacturing facilities throughout the year.
