Sustainable carpet tiles

Are carpet tiles a sustainable flooring option? Our answer is a resounding yes. Ever since modulyss' inception, our people, processes and products have been screened for their environmental impact. This has allowed us to develop a sustainable workflow over the years, delivering goods that are ecologically viable.

Already in 2007, we started processing our cutting waste in our Back2Back backing. A year later, we were the first European carpet tile manufacturer to use recycled content carpet fibres: Econyl70. In 2011, Aquafil launched the 100% regenerated ECONYL yarn range, which now forms the basis for several sustainable modulyss carpet tile collections.

From our sustainable partnership with Healthy Seas to our end-of-life and CO2 offset projects: we care.

Eco collections carpet tiles

Eco-collections

We have always been committed to producing eco-friendly products. Throughout the years, we have developed numerous ecological collections with ECONYL nylon yarn. First, with 70% ecological yarn and later, with 100% regenerated yarns. What makes these collections unique? They combine various environmental aspects, a recycled primary and secondary backing (back2back), into one efficient, ecological carpet tile.

Sustainable carpet tile backing

Back2back

modulyss uses its carpet tile waste generated during the tile cutting process by incorporating it into the secondary backing of the products. In our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our carpet tiles, we are always looking for new and alternative raw materials. The result? A high-quality and sustainable carpet tile backing.

We CARE

Every year in Europe, more than 20 million m2 of post-consumer carpet tiles are disposed of as building waste. Processing at the end of the lifecycle is of crucial importance to ensure that the valuable materials that went into making carpet tiles can be re-used. Instead of landfilling or simply incinerating this carpet waste, we launched a pioneering service through the ‘REsponse to used CArpet tiles’ (CARE) programme in January 2009, along with the Vanheede Environment Group.
