VEDELAGO, ITALY -- The full-body sintered stone, Lapitec, obtained an important international certification awarded by UL environment. The institute's mission is to protect human health, improving indoor air by reducing people's exposure to chemicals.

The numerous severe tests on samples of sintered stone have proved that Lapitec® is a material that does not emit pollutants, can be used in sustainable building projects and can be accepted by worldwide building regulations.

"The GreenGuard certification is a further step in the development path of our full-body sintered stone," said Michele Ballarin, Lapitec's director of sales and marketing. "It is a recognition that testifies the material's excellence and will be an important driver, above all in the countries where there are very strict standards for environmental sustainability for the products used in building and furnishing."
