Vycon® and the Environment: Introduction
With Vycon®, concern for the environment is evident in every aspect of design and manufacturing. As a corporation, J.Josephson is committed to creating wallcoverings that contribute to sustainability in every way:
Safeguarding air and water: Vycon is produced at our state-of-the-art New Jersey plant, where we make sure we meet and exceed Federal EPA requirements, the Clean Air and Water Acts, and OSHA regulations as well as the regulatory requirements of the state of New Jersey.
Eco-efficient manufacturing: Our printing facility is designed to recycle printing inks via a closed-loop ink system: All of the inks we use are sent to a still and then recycled.
Energy conservation: Our emission destruction process not only prevents harmful pollutants from escaping into the surrounding environment, it also yields energy as a by-product of the process. This energy reduces natural gas usage, thus significantly reducing dependence on outside energy supplies.
Earth-friendly products: All Vycon wallcoverings are as durable as they are decorative. We design them to be easy and affordable to maintain, with mild soap and water, for a lifetime of use.
We are dedicated to complying with today’s environmental issues and have eliminated all heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and chromium from our wallcoverings.
