Formica Corporation is committed to advancing sustainable operations through the responsible sourcing of raw materials and management of waste and energy.

Raw Material Management

Stainless Steel Plates

Formica Corporation has replaced a paper release system with pre-textured stainless steel plates to impart surface texture. These re-usable plates reduce the amount of scrap paper sent to landfill by as much as 80,000 cubic yards per year.

Waste Management


We recycle 100% of batteries that have reached the end of their useful life.

Scrap Metal

We recycle the scrap metal produced by our maintenance departments.

Hydraulic Oils

Formica Corporation collects hydraulic oils used on presses and sends the oils to a closed-loop filtration system that enables their perpetual re-use.

Light Bulbs 

We recycle 100% of light bulbs that have reached the end of their useful life.


Scrap wood pallets are ground into fuel, which produces steam for use within the facility.


The packaging we use to ship Formica® Laminate and Everform™ Solid Surface is made from recycled materials. It is also re-usable, recyclable and biodegradable

Paper Recycling

Unusable Kraft paper, cardboard packaging, paper roll wrappers and cores, and office papers are all recycled.

Energy Management

Closed-Loop, High Pressure Hot Water

We have installed closed-loop, high-pressure hot water systems in the Cincinnati, Ohio, and St. Jean, Canada, plants to efficiently retain heat for successive pressings in the manufacturing process.


High-efficiency lamps are installed throughout the manufacturing facilities in Cincinnati, Ohio, and St. Jean, Canada, and our distribution centers. Auto-sensor lighting is used in offices to conserve energy.

Emissions Controls

Formica Corporation controls particulate emissions at its manufacturing facilities. In addition, Formica has replaced solvent-based phenolic resins with water-based phenolic resins, thereby greatly reducing VOC
