IDYLIUM's commitment

IDYLIUM’s mission is to disrupt the large-format surfaces scenario, introducing into this market goals that – until yesterday – were little debated, such as sustainability and circular production. The company has been committed since 2018 – the year of its foundation – to a constant improvement process involving social and economic, as well as environmental, areas of corporate responsibility.

IDYLIUM TODAY

a company with a low environmental impact

6 mm slab = 120 kg minerals 


100%

NATURAL

IDYLIUM Mineral Stone is made from natural raw materials in pulverized form: oxides of natural origin, clays, feldspars.

100%

BIODEGRADABLE

The powders are compacted by mechanical force only, without the addition of resins. This is why IDYLIUM is 100% biodegradable.

24%

RECYCLED

24% of the pulverized raw materials that make up IDYLIUM Mineral Stone come from recycled waste materials.

100%

voc free

The absence of any chemical additives and solvents makes IDYLIUM surfaces completely inert: zero emissions, zero VOC.

100%

BACTERIOSTATIC

Thanks to the zero degree of porosity, IDYLIUM surfaces are immune to bacterial colonies and can be sanitized with the most effective products.

ECOLOGY, ENVIRONMENT AND TERRITORY

LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

The IDYLIUM factory is in Castellón, in the largest district in Europe for the processing of stone by-products.

Suppliers and materials are zero-km, tracked and guaranteed with regard to safety and recycled content.

IDYLIUM: 4.0 quarry

Synthetic stone is a choice to safeguard the delicate ecosystems from which natural stones such as marble, onyx and quartzite are extracted.

IDYLIUM is a 3.0 quarry, where the sintered stone is created as in the mountain, according to natural processes, very complex to reproduce industrially.

WATER

All wastewater from the plant’s production cycle is returned to the process and 100% reused.

IDYLIUM’s water management is a closed loop. Thanks to patented technologies with innovative hydraulic power generators, energy consumption is reduced by up to 30%.

WASTE

100% of raw waste (fragments and powders) is recovered and reused, both internally and externally.

IDYLIUM starts from partly-recycled raw material: it thus also recovers waste produced by third parties.

A filter in the furnace purifies the gaseous waste from acid gases (sulfur, chlorine and fluorine).

DISPOSAL

In Bio construction and for BIM, attention to the full life cycle of the architectural product is critical.

At the end of its long life, IDYLIUM Mineral Stone can be disposed of as an inert product which, on the waste risk scale, is the lowest level, easiest to manage and least costly.

HOW THE MINERAL STONE IDYLIUM IS CREATED

1.

RAW MATERIALS


Oxides of natural origin, clays and feldspars in pulverized form.

24% is recycled waste material.

No added resins, no chemical additives.

2.

PRESS


Mechanical pressure of 35,000 tons. It recreates the natural process of stone formation without any chemical binders.

The waste material is 100% recycled.

3.

DRYER


Maximum temperature of 150°C.

Gas-fired and with recovery of thermal energy from the OVEN (5).

4.

DIGITAL PRINTING


Advanced technologies that eliminate waste. Hydraulic power generator reduces energy consumption by up to 30%.

Water used for washing is 100% recycled.

5.

KILN


Maximum temperature 1250°C.

The pre-kiln is fed by recovery gas.

The cooling operation does not use thermal energy.

6.

FILTERS


They purify gaseous waste from acid gases (sulfur, chlorine and fluorine) avoiding their release into the atmosphere.

7.

DISCARDS


100% of raw waste (fragments and powders) is recovered and reused, both in the process and externally.

i

PACKAGES


Reusable metal stands for a high number of shipments.

Zero km supplies within the ceramic district of Castellon.

IDYLIUM TOMORROW

The company will provide an environmental benefit by returning more than it takes in.

Anti-pollution power

IDYLIUM is developing an exclusive formula capable of annihilating organic compounds that settle on surfaces through photocatalytic oxidation, a natural process that mimics chlorophyll photosynthesis.

This treatment will be able to reduce air pollution. Both outside (thanks to the application of ventilated facades) and inside the house, exerting a bactericidal effect even more necessary in delicate contexts, such as schools and health facilities.

SYNERGIES with the territory

In addition to the business IDYLIUM develops collaborations to create valuable synergies in the territory.

First of all, those with SDA Bocconi, Politecnico di Milano, Bologna Business School and University of Genoa.

With some workers and importers of natural stones, IDYLIUM is studying alternatives to some very rare natural stones in order to avoid their extraction.

environmental benefit

The 40,000 square meters of industrial area will be covered with photovoltaic panels to reach, in optimal conditions, the self-production up to 100% of the electricity needs of the company, drastically reducing CO2 emissions.

The ventilated facades made with IDYLIUM surfaces activate oxidation and destroy the polluting compounds deposited on them.

It is the effect you would get by planting a forest in the city.

schools and hospitals

IDYLIUM product will enter the list of recommended products for the construction of schools and hospitals.

The company’s goal is to achieve the most restrictive parameters in the field of green building and reduction of volatile emissions in order to acquire the most ambitious certifications and the highest social value.

IDYLIUM wants to be the best choice for quality and safety, even in the most challenging public contexts (schools, hospitals, laboratories, layovers).
