Armstrong demonstrates commitment to recycling at Farnborough International Airshow

  • 3 Oct 2018

For the sixth year in a row, Armstrong Ceiling Solutions has recycled the mineral tiles from the Farnborough International Airshow.

Armstrong successfully recycled over 10,000m2 of mineral tiles from this year’s event as part of the company’s ongoing mission to divert as many ceiling tiles from landfill as possible. Since its launch 19 years ago, the company has prevented over 15 million square metres globally of used ceiling tiles from going into landfill.

As a testament to the growing importance and emphasis sustainability has on the industry, this year saw a marked increase on the number of airshow contractors actively returning the ceiling tiles for recycling themselves.

The service saves contractors (whom Armstrong does not charge for the service) costs in landfill and skip hire tax. It also saves tonnes of virgin raw material, kWh of energy, CO2 equivalent greenhouse gasses, and litres of potable water.

Head of airshow operations, Ben Gleeson, comments: “We are proud to mark the fact that not only do we host and produce a world-class airshow but also that we champion the environment through the recycling service that Armstrong has introduced to us.”

Once returned to Armstrong’s production facility in Gateshead, the tiles were recycled back into the mix with the help of the Southampton branch of specialist distributor SIG Interiors.

The recycling service is offered to all projects during the demolition, construction and renovation stages and includes all mineral tiles and no minimum quantities.
