REcore Presentation

With 30% recycled content, RECORE is the industry's “best in class” recycled wallcovering technology.

    • 30% recycled content including 20% post-consumer
    • Eligible for contribution towards six LEED credits
    • Low VOC emitting – GREENGUARD® Indoor Air Quality Certified
    • Recyclable – OMNOVA’s Reclamation Program
    • Durable – Type II, 20-oz.

RECORE technology is available standard on all new Bolta & Genon designs.


30% Recycled Content

Wallcoverings made with RECORE Recycled Wall Technology have 30% recycled content. With a guaranteed minimum of 20% post-consumer waste, we are making a difference by diverting not only used wallcovering from the landfill but also consumer level “trash.” In addition to the minimum 20% post-consumer content, RECORE wallcoverings contain an average of 10% post-industrial content.


Recyclable

RECORE wallcoverings are recyclable. Construction waste, as well as after-use material, can be returned for recycling.


Low VOC Emitting

RECORE wallcoverings have been tested for their chemical emissions performance and are low VOC emitting. Over 90% of Bolta and Genon branded vinyl wall coverings – including those with RECORE Recycled Wall Technology – are GREENGUARD® certified for their low VOC emissions.


M.R. Credit 2.1: Construction Waste Management, Divert 50% From Landfill.

Consistent with its sustainability vision, MDC is committed to assisting in the diversion of construction and demolition waste from disposal in landfills and incinerators and redirecting recyclable recovered resources back into our manufacturing processes.

With this LEED credit, there is a requirement to develop and implement a construction waste management plan, quantifying material diversion goals to recycle and/or salvage at least 50% of construction, demolition and packaging debris.


M.R. Credit 2.2: Construction Waste Management, Divert 75% From Landfill.

With this credit, there is a requirement to develop and implement a construction waste management plan, again quantifying material diversion goals. Project must recycle and/or salvage at least 75% of construction, demolition and packaging debris.


M.R. Credit 4.1: Recycled Content, 10% (post-consumer + 1/2 pre-consumer).

With this credit, there is a requirement to use materials with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the post-industrial content, constitutes at least 10% of the total value of the materials in the project.

As required by the LEED standard, RECORE recycled wallcoverings include 30% recycled content, including a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission document, Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims, and therefore can contribute to this credit.


M.R. Credit 4.2: Recycled Content, 20% (post-consumer + 1/2 pre-consumer).

With this credit, there is a requirement to use materials with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half of the post-industrial content constitutes at least 20% of the total value of the materials in the project.

The value of the recycled content portion of a material or furnishing is determined by dividing the weight of recycled content in the item by the total weight of all material in the item, then multiplying the resulting percentage by the total cost ($) of the item.

As required by the LEED standard, RECORE recycled wallcoverings include 30% recycled content, including a minimum of 20% post-consumer recycled content, in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission document, Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims, and therefore can contribute to this credit.


M.R. Credit 5.1: Regional Material: 20% Manufactured Locally.

With this credit, there is a requirement to use a minimum of 20% of the combined value of construction and Division 12 materials and products that are manufactured regionally within a radius of 500 miles from the project. For projects within a 500 mile radius of Columbus, MS, the use of RECORE recycled wallcoverings can contribute to this credit.


E.Q. Credit 4.1: Low Emitting Materials: Adhesives and Sealants.

When RECORE recycled wallcoverings are installed with low emitting adhesives, thus reducing the quantity of indoor air contaminants, they may contribute to this credit.


Durable with Long Life Cycle

Durable products that perform exceptionally well throughout their service life and last longer than paint are part of a sustainability strategy. When RECORE remains on the wall for an extended period of time, less energy is used, fewer raw materials are consumed and less waste is generated. Specifying RECORE wallcoverings reduces both environmental impact and life-cycle costs.
