Our Ecological Commitment

Ecore was born “green” and has been making smart choices for more than a century. Ecore started by harvesting the benefits of wood without harming trees (with Ecore cork products), and has evolved into mining waste streams for high performance raw materials, dominated currently by recycled rubber.

In all of its operations, Ecore is committed to using resources wisely to protect the environment. Ecore goes to great lengths to ensure that the manufacturing process and resulting products are safe. Ecore prides itself on continuously testing and retesting products to maintain this level of quality.

Ecore is the largest user of scrap tire rubber in the U.S.A., converting more than 80 million pounds of tires annually into recycled rubber flooring. ECORE's capabilities include grinding, screening, removal of stone, wood, paper, fluff, fiber, and other materials from scrap tire rubber to produce exacting specifications that meet or exceed customers internal, external, and ASTM specifications. With our state of the art equipment, experienced staff, and 100 million pound capacity, Ecore is uniquely capable of producing the cleanest, most consistent, and highest quality material available in the market place.

At Ecore, we don’t just insist on the highest quality materials for production processes - we actually make them ourselves. Ecore's vertically integrated manufacturing system gives us complete control over our own carefully created raw materials, insuring reliable feed stock and allowing us to be our own primary material component supplier.

Ecore remains true to our values by using a sustainable, proprietary manufacturing process that does not include smokestacks, uses minimal water, and reuses all on-site scrap rubber.
