Zero Waste Project

What is usually called industrial waste, we call secondary raw materials.


In 2020 Urbi et Orbi launched a circular economy initiative, called “Zero Waste Project”. By using and repurposing our industrial waste, we are humbly contributing to the global sustainability effort of closing the waste gap.

How do we do that:

  • The leftover concrete rubble pieces replace a large portion of other gravels and aggregates used in mixing new concrete.
  • During the treatment of our products (sawing, grinding etc ) a heavy-duty dust collector is employed to collect the concrete dust waste, which is then used as a filler material in a new concrete mixture, giving it a new life and purpose inside a new product.

What does that mean for you

  • The products which are included in the “Zero Waste Project”, contain between 20 to 80% of recycled excess raw materials in their mixture, strictly complying with the essential quality and safety requirements and always ensuring that our company’s core craftmanship values and commitments are upheld.
  • The use of leftover raw materials, introduce a new terrazzo finish for you to choose from, with different colorful aggregates, as well as the already tried and proven uniform, or ”sand” finish, in which the aggregates are invisible.
  • By choosing a product from the “Zero Waste Project”, you are actively playing a part in the international movement to manage and lessen industrial waste.


To find out more about the products that are included in the Zero Waste Project, look for the recycling banner with the unique percentage of zero waste materials that are included in each product. Those products contribute toward satisfying ‘Recycling Content’ Credit under LEED®.
