F.B.M. Product Lines and UL Environmental Claim Validation

The willingness to keep investing and offering new solutions to our valued customers and end users, lead us to further improve the Ecosystem line, through an extremely authoritative global leader inspection company which is highly specialized in sustainability challenges.

F.B.M. focused on certifying its Ecosystem range and in the specific:
  • ECOSYSTEM BLACK. The product line developed with the idea of being the most sustainable handle range, while meeting the consumer’s daily use needs, and maintain the classic black color of cookware accessories.
  • ECOSYSTEM LOOK AT ME. A new version of the sustainable Ecosystem range, that embraces a more ambitious and expansive concept of being and looking planet friendly. This product line is distinguished by its dye-free handles, side-handles, and knobs. All of them have a distinctive greenish color and no two are exactly alike, like in nature.

Originally, the thermoset material mainly used in the manufacture of our products was considered a non-recoverable raw material, and all residues were sent to landfills. In recent years, the company has initiated a project to recover production waste from thermoset molding by installing machinery that reintroduces the material as filler.
This process has led to the launch of a new product line called ECOSYSTEM. The product line is made from a combination of raw materials of natural origin and internally regenerated production waste.
