Eliane’s EcoStone collection of porcelain tiles was recently awarded the Fritz Muller Award, recognized by the Santa Catarina Environmental Foundation (FATMA) for being “the top ecological porcelain product from Brazil.”

On August 31, Eliane CEO Edson Gaidzinski will accept the honor from Mr. Luiz Henrique da Silva, governor of Santa Catarina, in the 16th annual Fritz Muller Awards program.

Eliane’s EcoStone porcelain is manufactured with up to 60 percent post-industrial recycled raw material, reusing 90 percent of the water necessary in the production process, while saving up to 50 percent on energy costs for each cycle, the company notes.
