How environmentally friendly is Slate-Lite?

Thanks to their lightness and thinness, our very-thin stone veneers are not only easy to work with and offer unique possibilities for indoor and outdoor use, with Slate-Lite you also choose environmentally friendly stone decoration!

The emission rates on the transport routes are many times lower with Slate-Lite than with conventional stone slabs, which leads to a significantly more positive ecological balance.

Most of our goods are shipped to our central warehouse by sea. With a pollutant quantity of around 15.1 grams of CO2 emissions per kilometer (source: NABU), the following sample calculation for one of our containers results:
(Comparative calculation: Sea route India / Germany. Granite slab vs. Slate-Lite) A sheet of Slate-Lite thus produces approx. 95% less CO2 than a conventional thick stone slab during transport!

In addition, the manufacturing process developed by us also conserves natural resources in the quarries: From the stone material of a single conventional stone slab of 2 cm, we produce 200 - 400 Slate-Lite slabs depending on the decor!

Of course, we are also increasingly relying on recyclable solutions for our packaging, so that we have already been able to reduce the proportion of plastic waste many times over in recent years.
And of course we will continue to work on this path in the future!
