Vinyl flooring company to realise wind farm in Avelgem

Luxury vinyl flooring giant Moduleo has received planning permission to build a dedicated wind-farm at its eco-production site in Avelgem, Belgium. David Bigland MD of the UK and Eire comments: “We have built our innovative production plant to ensure that maximum efforts are made to recycle production waste and have also made this additional active investment in renewable energy.

“We are proud to announce that we have now obtained a licence for three wind turbines which will have a maximum energy output of 6.9 MW, corresponding to 43% of the total energy usage of IVC on an annual basis. This will equate to around 65% of Moduleo’s energy usage and the wind turbines will be operational from 2013.”

Designed to reflect the unique patterns and textures found in nature, Moduleo flooring combines the authenticity and beauty of natural products with the rugged durability of vinyl technology. The new turbines will be operational from 2013.

In addition to this, Moduleo ensures that VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions from the factory are minimal. It is this dedication to environmentally-friendly production that has earned the brand the Ü-mark certificate of distinction and allowed it to meet the AgBB standard. This German standard is the strictest one in the world in terms of VOCs. Moduleo floors also comply with French VOC legislation and qualify for the A+ logo.
