Strategic Materials Inc. launches eco-friendly recycled glass filtration product
HOUSTON, TEXAS – February 3, 2021 — Strategic Materials, Inc., North America’s largest glass recycler, today announced the launch of an eco-friendly filtration media, TruFiltration, made from 100% recycled glass, servicing residential and commercial filtration markets.
The company boasts recycled glass media is superior to traditional products in the marketplace like silica sand for health and performance benefits. Unlike commonly used sand media, recycled glass does not cause worker concern for free crystalline silica and filters up to six times better. The filtration media was developed specifically to meet the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification for pools and spas.
“Our filtration product is a natural fit for the company. We know glass and we have the footprint to best service the market,” says Jeff Ferchen, director of specialty sales for the company. “Glass as a filtration media is not only sustainable, but it also provides benefits that sand cannot. Our product lasts longer and requires less media, while providing a better performance.”
TruFiltration is manufactured at several glass recycling facilities for the company and will be available at residential and commercial distributors nation-wide later this month.
