- The problem to be solved:
Silicate granules and related products on the basis of glass waste recycle. Those glass
containing waste streams are converted into construction material components that are
otherwise considered useless and are deposited (dumped).
Geofil bubbles are manufactured via proprietary recycling technique of solid
wastes with high glass contents. Wastes can contain different organic and inorganic
components, other than glass too. Products are lightweight granules of 5-25 mm, primarily
dedicated for heat and sound insulation structures with a special feature of strongly
adhering to gypsum and concrete matrices.
Heat and sound insulating plasters and layers; Heat insulating floor tiling
elements (in floor heating systems); Protecting bridges against freeze; Lightweight
concrete blocks; Sound bluster walls
Rational use of natural resources (substituting mined basalt, sand, perlite, gravel,
etc.); Reducing waste damping; Heat insulating materials do render fire protection too.
- Stage of development: Scale: pilot plant;
Products: meet EU specifications in heat and sound insulating requirements
