LOS ANGELES—As part of its effort to increase the use of recycled content and reduce energy use, Samsung recently received an upgraded Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) certification on 21 Staron® solid surfaces and five Radianz™ quartz recycled content products. In addition to the newly certified products, SCS certification was renewed on several Staron and Radianz recycled content colors.

Along with the SCS certification, Samsung has also been accredited GREENGUARD Level 3 certification, meaning all Staron solid surfaces, Tempest and Radianz Quartz products are certified to be low-emitting materials that lead to better air quality indoors. Samsung products also qualify for the Children and Schools GREENGUARD certification, making them suitable for use in environments where children and others work, play or reside.

“We pride ourselves on our commitment to reducing energy consumption while at the same time creating low-emitting products that improve the air quality in homes and places of work,” says Dale Mandell, Samsung’s surfacing division’s North America sales director. “Our aim in using pre-consumer recycled content in our products is to surpass both SCS and GREENGUARD criteria, providing another advantage for commercial and residential work partnerships.”

Products certified by SCS as containing recycled materials can help meet the criteria for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) MR-4 as specified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Architects and designers who specify building components for LEED projects prefer third-party certified products such as Samsung Staron and Radianz quartz surfaces.
