Saint-Gobain Glass has launched SGG Miralite Revolution, a mirror that has been developed using technologies, which lower the environmental impact during manufacture, whilst keeping durability and clarity.

30% recycled glass is used in its production whilst a reduction of CO2 has been achieved through the re-treatment and re-use of water, recycling of metal residues, and cullet recycling.

According to the company, no lead, copper or any toxic substances are used in the production of the mirror whilst ultra low VOC emissions maintain inside air quality making SGG Miralite Revolution non-harmful to health.

These measurable environmental benefits may be used in commercial buildings to help achieve higher BREEAM standards, supported fully by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) and Life Cycle Assessment.
