Made from the highest grade recycled stainless steel, SOLON effortlessly collects organic waste below the counter and its stunning design allows homeowners to beautifully incorporate green living into their kitchen. Winner of the prestigious international iF award for product design, SOLON installs conveniently next to sinks and its minimalist, elegant style makes it suited to any decor. Simple to clean and dishwasher safe, BLANCO SOLON fits into any countertop with a virtually seamless appearance. SOLON’s attractive lid offers a hygienic seal that contains odors.
“The SOLON ingeniously collects egg shells, vegetable peels, coffee grounds and more,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “People are so intrigued with composting, but they don’t want a bulky container taking up valuable space and they are afraid of odors. SOLON traps odors inside and integrates seamlessly with the counter so you hardly know it’s there. It’s an eco-friendly way to bring the beauty of BLANCO from the kitchen to the garden. It’s also incredibly easy to install in any countertop. We have a drop-in design that can go anywhere and a flush option for stone tops. You don’t have to re-do your kitchen to incorporate composting into your life.”

“BLANCO’s efforts for the protection of the environment go far beyond developing innovative products like our new SOLON Composting System or HYDRA water-saving faucet,” says Tim Maicher. “We believe that our overall focus must be sustainable and intensive beyond any legally required standard. To achieve this goal, we use the latest energy-saving exhaust air technology, returning heat energy back to the production process. Water consumption in our overall process was reduced 50% by installing water-cooling technology, and we continue to reduce production scrap by using the highest quality raw materials, computer-controlled mixing machines, optimized processes and production facilities. We also do not use CFC- and CHC-chasteners. In addition, we proudly achieved a permanent and significant reduction of oil consumption and CO2 emission in our facilities and we purposefully purchase from ecological evaluated suppliers.”
SOLON launches this week at K/BIS.
