In an effort to decrease the impact resulting from extraction and processing of virgin materials, DIFINITI’s Enrich Series & Excite Series offer recycled glass content. This table provides a summary of the recycled glass found in each material.
According to the Material & Resource Credits 4.1 & 4.2: Recycled Content guideline of LEED for New Construction version 2.2, Use of building materials with recycled content such that the sum of post-consumer recycled content plus one-half the pre-consumer recycled content constitutes 10-20% (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project. Since the above glass chips are comprised of recycled materials, they may help contribute to these credits.
