Zapatón flooring: A second chance for industrial waste

ProquinalIn our search for a better way to manage the several industrial wastes generated during the coated textiles manufacturing processes, we developed Zapatón. The flooring product incorporates 5 different solid residues from our process and avoids the disposal of around 460 tons of solid waste inland fill per year. It is currently commercially available under the product name Zapatón and it is sold in Colombia.
