LOMAX™ Technology from Trinseo uses methane gas collected from a nearby landfill as the primary energy source to manufacture the latex used for carpet backing. The resulting steam energy runs approximately 95 percent of the manufacturing processes at the plant. Because the methane is harnessed for energy instead of being released into the atmosphere, LOMAX™ Technology helps mitigate global warming by reducing the use of fossil fuels and the landfill’s methane emissions.
Carpet backing made with LOMAX™ Latex provides the same high-performance characteristics of Trinseo’s conventional latex, but it comes with a lower environmental footprint.
