Daltile Wood & stone tiling for walls and floors
Daltile specializes in wall & floor tiling for any style and any room.

Pre-consumer recycled content
More than 98% of Daltile’s manufactured products contain pre-consumer (post-industrial) recycled materials. This minimizes the use of virgin raw materials to the greatest extent possible.
Conserving solid materials
To help protect nature’s grand design, the Daltile Greenworks program has included changes in processes as well as products. Daltile is currently preventing over 200 million pounds of solid wastes from ending up in landfills.
This is being done in a variety of ways such as utilizing by-products that other companies had previously discarded, reusing their own manufacturing waste and recycling as many solid materials as possible that cannot be reused internally.
State Reuse program
Over 48 million pounds of material that cannot be used to make new tile products was recycled in state-approved beneficial reuse programs, including:
- Land reclamation
- Roadbed base material
- Raw material for brick and cement manufacturing
- U.S. map to find the manufacturing/materials location within a 500 mile radius of your project location
- Search by the desired type and amount of recycled material content
- Search by Product Category to find all available series within a specific category that will help you obtain LEED® Credits
- Search by Product Series to find important product information that will help you obtain LEED® Credits
Today, five of our plants recycle and reuse 100% of wastewater generated in manufacturing. In these facilities, not a single drop goes to waste. Our goal is to discharge no process wastewater from any of our plants.
Conserving waste water
Water is essential to life. And Daltile is taking major steps to help ensure that this vital element is protected and preserved. Currently all manufacturing facilities recycle water to a great extent, and we are working towards our goal of zero discharge of process wastewater from any of our plants in the near future.
By reevaluating our operations, Daltile has dramatically reduced the energy they consume. As of today, they conserve enough energy to provide natural gas for over 6,000 homes and electricity for over 1,700 homes annually. Further, a fuel saving device is being applied to reduce fuel consumption by 10%-20% and emissions by an average of 50%. Manufacturing plants have reduced natural gas demand over 8% in the last two years.
