New Jersey - Lancrest Moldings, which makes architectural products and decorative mouldings, says all of the products it now offer are eco-friendly and completely free of CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons).
Lancrest says that demand for wood products is clearing the Earth's forests on a massive scale, with net loss of the world's forests is estimated at 18 million acres per year.
Mark Anderson, VP of product development at the New Jersey-based firm, said in a company statement that, "Lancrest Moldings are made from polyurethane and composite materials. Although many are not aware of this, one of the most important environmentally friendly benefits of polyurethane moulding is its ability to be recycled back into the manufacturing process while also conserving energy."
Anderson says use of these mouldings instead of wood is "considered green and a major step forward in the fight against deforestation."
Lancrest said it remains committed to reducing its footprint on the environment and conserving vital natural resources
Lancrest products are made using only water as the blowing agent in order to avoid the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). CFCs along with other halogenated compounds, have been implicated in the accelerated depletion of ozone in the Earth's stratosphere.
Lancrest Moldings claims to offer products with a sharp level of detail which it claims is "unparalleled in the industry." The company also offers a free design consultation service, installation guide, and an inspiration gallery of moulding designs, moulding ideas, and tools.
