Are there non-toxic quartz kitchen counters?

I have a medical condition and cannot tolerate any type of scents and mainstream products for building e.g. chalking, paint, glue, etc. . We have picked our quartz countertop and need to know if it can be installed using materials which are low voc and non-toxic without having to compromise with BPA content and formaldehyde etc. The installer needs to use epoxy to attach the undermount sink to the counter, crazy glue and clear silicone. Any experiences that were a success using non-toxic products and the product names for the specific task would be helpful. Thank you.

Engineered stone is a composite material made of crushed stone bound together by an polymer resin. Some versions use cement mix as the binder. Marble and quartz are the most commonly used crusted stones. But you could check <a href="https://www.caesarstoneus.com/about-us/information-inspiration/design-to-inspire/quartzite-countertops-vs-quartz-countertops/">Caesarstone</a>  for they offer  natural quartz and granite stones.
