GUT's first mission is to optimise the manufacturing and recycling procedures to obtain the largest possible protection for man and the environment. This starts with the materials used for production which directly influence the discarding possibilities at the end of the carpet's life-cycle.
The attention in manufacturing is also focussed on the environmentally sensitive processes of dyeing and backing. In the first case, the aim is to further reduce water consumption and effluent pollution. In backing, research is continuing on low-emission products.
