GREEN INITIATIVES = ENERGY EFFICIENCES 

Sunset Hill Stoneware is produced in a one-of-a-kind production pottery facility incorporating safety and environmental excellence that simply does not exist elsewhere.
  • Custom-engineered HVAC system reclaims 100% of the heat produced. Re-dispersed to dry greenware, warm water, heat facility, etc.
  • Smart technology is used to monitor indoor/outdoor temperatures and humidity levels resulting in repeatable, precise year-round room temperature of 78° at 45% humidity – perfect for clay drying and employee comfort.
     
  • Powerful clean air filtration and circulation system installed to control harmful airborne contaminates (a/k/a silica) generated from clay dust. System generates a continuous flow of internal fresh air circulation.
     
  • Water is intercepted and separated to prevent manufacturing by-products from affecting employees or local communities.
     
  • White reflective painted walls and high-performance lighting for bright, uplifting work environment.
