Slab material for architectural facade and interiors

June 2020

Identification

Cradle2Cradle Gold accredited slab materials for architectural facade and interiors. The solution is a material formed from the crystallization of glass industry waste, one that covers the stone and glass market applications and is specified by architects and designers visited and assisted in their aims.

A surface slab material, not one hidden within a fabric but one exposed to climate and environment, one that has aesthetic advantages, lighting qualities, durability and real performance in use. It reduces reliance on Earths resources. Targeted disruption to traditional building material specification is being forced by government policy. New and Refurbishment Build Legislation has set zero carbon and circular economy targets. Closed Loop materials from waste sources (ie recyclable without additives or binders) are being sought but not found easily.

Label Date June 2020
From United Kingdom
Maturity stage Medium and large scale commercialization
Looking For We seek Circular Economy supporters, processing partners, designer supporters and specifiers, architects, interior designers, corporate clients and Government backed law changes to move us all to Circular Economy.

The environmental benefits

  • The energy used to sinter and produce glaskeramik (from glass industry wastestream) amounts to a third of that for the glass industry waste producer to reprocess its material into clear glass again
  • 100% wastestream source upcycled and 100% recyclable after life back into itself or glass
  • The material has a life as long as glass.
  • Creation of a true circular economy material has huge benefits in avoiding use of Earths mined resources & travel of product across the world
