  • 3. 1. Article Technology enabled innovations in the tile industry has led to production of the next generation of wall and floor tilesthat are helping in protecting the environment. Japanese company Toto and an American company Crossvillehave together created a new type of ceramic tilethat can clean itself and the atmosphere. A special coating on these tilesbecomes activated in the presence of light, thusremoving stains and contaminants from air. Another Italian company, which manufactures floor tilesand wall tilesmade of ceramic and porcelain, has reinvented its ceramic tilesto protect the environment. Like trees, these tiles can remove nitrogen oxide from air. Another such innovation is the digital inkjet printing that has revolutionized the manufacturing of ceramicand porcelain tiles. The process enables manufactures to imitate any design like that of stones that shouldn’t be harvested for environment protection. Similarly, the look of wood on the wall tilesand floor tiles, which is very popular, can be easily created instead of using real wood. Some of the largest tile manufacturing countrieslike Spain and Italy are proactively adopting environmental friendly practices and haveadopted the Green Squared Certificationfor Porcelain as the industry standard for sustainable practices.
