Recycling at Sika Sarnafil

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description In May 2009, The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) will recognize the work of Sika Sarnafil for their recycling and resource recovery efforts. Sika Sarnafil, a division of Sika Corporation, is a leading manufacturer of high-tech thermoplastic membranes used in roofing and waterproofing systems. The company, which has a manufacturing plant in Canton, converts more than 98 percent of the raw material it receives into product. Since the early 1990s, Sika Sarnafil has recycled about four million pounds of trimmings annually from its manufacturing process — material previously destined for local landfills or third-party grinding companies are shipped back to Canton. Recently, Sika Sarnafil began taking resource recovery to new heights; it became the first company in its industry to recycle old vinyl roofs. Buoyed by its success in Massachusetts, Sika Sarnafil intends to expand its resource recovery program nationally. Sika also worked with MA OTA to ensure regulatory compliance for the recycled roofing materials.
