Eco Mark certification criteria released for 6 kinds of PVC construction products

 Japan Environment Association has published the Eco Mark certification criteria for the following construction materials using PVC.
 ・Plastic deck materials
 ・Wooden/plastic recycled compounds
 ・Storm water storage tanks
 ・Toughened PVC tube for discharging water and aeration

 Furthermore, draft criteria for vinyl flooring, window profiles and bath units have been publicized for public comment. We believed that the durability and recyclability of PVC has gained credit for this Eco Mark trend on PVC products. Along with the existing criteria on PVC modular carpets, these new criteria would further promote use of PVC construction materials.
