Global Affairs Canada is seeking a solution that will contribute to the circular economy by recycling plastic into ceiling tiles and that meet a high safety standard with no chemical emissions. The existing ceiling tiles are drop ceiling mineral acoustical tiles. We need something comparable in acoustical, insulating and fire retardant performance, but made with 100% recycled plastic.
With a 10-year renovation underway of one on our buildings, we are seeking building products that are more sustainable. In line with the Greening Government Strategy, we are striving for the renovation of the Lester B. Pearson building to be certified LEED v4 Gold. This requires that we use non-toxic, recycled or reclaimed materials.
There are no ceiling tiles currently on the market that are made completely of recycled plastic and that do not produce any chemical emissions. We would like to have a non-toxic ceiling tile that we can use in any current or future renovations.
