Commitment to Being Green
Mansfield is committed to reduce raw materials such as slip, glaze and plaster per ton of boxed product, which in turn reduces the use of water and chemicals for water treatment and the disposition of inert material in landfills.
Kiln Loading Optimization and Detailed Production Scheduling
Mansfield is committed to reducing the natural gas required per pound or ton of product. We have had great results in this area. Our gas consumption is lower than the industry standard for sanitary ware worldwide.
Product Development and Manufacturing
Mansfield is committed to developing products of superior value. All of our toilets are undergoing product improvements in terms of water consumption and flushing performance. Over the last year we have dramatically increased MaP ratings on all domestically produced toilets, with more improvements to come. Simultaneously we are expanding manufacturing capacity using more energy efficient technologies that generate far less waste. The resulting yield improvement means less scrap going to the landfills.
Mansfield is committed to running more efficiently:
- Lighting: Our objective is to conserve the use of electric energy while improving the lighting conditions of our plant. We will accomplish this by using more efficient fixtures throughout.
- Compressed Air Optimization and Expansion: Our objective is to reduce the energy required to produce the compressed air required in a per piece basis
- Waste Heat Recovery: We reuse the energy that comes out of our kilns to heat water and feed our ware dryers.
Mansfield is committed to recycle cartons that we receive from our suppliers and have projects to promote the culture of recycling among our labor force within the plant. All of our fired scrap and used mold are used by a local company to make by-products such as gravel and plaster for soil amendments and fertilizers.
