CONCEPCION DEL URUGUAY, ARGENTINA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/07/14 -- SCS Global Services (SCS), a leader in third-party environmental and sustainability certification, announced today that it has issued Recycled Content Certification for several products produced by Argentinian composite wood manufacturer, Sadepan Latinoamericana S.A. The Recycled Content Certification confirms that Sadepan's particleboards (tablero crudo), waterproof boards (tablero hidrófugo), and melamine boards (tablero melamínico) are made from a minimum of 58% "pre-consumer" recycled wood derived from sawmill waste.
"Our independent audit has evaluated Sadepan's supply chain and production data to verify the sources of input material and determine the total percentage of recycled content in the finished composite wood products," said Alicia Godlove, Materials Services Manager for SCS. "The certification will help accurately communicate this information to downstream customers."
The recycled ingredients used to manufacture Sadepan's particleboard consist of chips, sawdust, and wood trimmings derived from over 50 sawmills throughout the Entre Ríos Province of Argentina. The wood waste is combined with virgin wood, resin, wax and other minor additives to produce finished particleboard of varying thickness. Sadepan particleboard products are used for furniture, construction and decorative products.
"We are pleased that SCS has verified our supply data to confirm our recycled content claim," said Horacio G. Kern CEO of Sadepan. "Sadepan, along with our parent company, Gruppo Mauro Saviola, is committed to sustainability, has been a leader in the use of recycled wood for particleboard manufacturing, and is continually looking for ways to lessen our impact on the environment."
SCS has been certifying recycled content since 1989. The Recycled Content Certification claim has been used by companies in a variety of industries including wood products, textiles, plastics, and metals.
