Osmose MicroPro adds green credentials
Griffin, Ga.-based Osmose has received from UL Environment their Environmental Claim Validation for the Osmose MicroPro preservative technology.
The UL Environment Environmental Claim Validation provides assurance that the Osmose MicroPro technology exhibits volatile organic compound (VOC) content below the limits defined by South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) RULE 1113. Wood products treated with the Osmose MicroPro technology can be used in schools and office construction, and to create products such as children’s playsets.
“By achieving an Environmental Claim Validation from UL Environment for their MicroPro technology, Osmose has demonstrated to buyers, retailers, and consumers their commitment to third-party substantiation and scientifically backed claims,” said Sara Greenstein, president of UL Environment.
UL Environment, a business unit of Underwriters Laboratories, works to promote global sustainability, environmental health, and safety by supporting the growth and development of environmentally preferable products, services and organizations.
In addition to this new validation, MicroPro technology has also earned Green Approved Product Certification from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center under the National Green Building Standard program, Greenguard Children & Schools Certification from UL Environment, and an Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) certification from Scientific Certification Systems based on Life-Cycle Assessment.
