INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announces today that nora by Interface, the commercial rubber flooring brand of Interface, has selected Styroflex® ECO 2G66 B60 to support the company’s efforts to lower the carbon footprint of its products as it endeavors to become a carbon negative enterprise by 2040.
