Replacing cement with ground recycled glass – Island Block and Paving are producing beautiful bricks and blocks.
On the beautiful “Apple Isle” of Tasmania, a local Aussie company is making significant waves in the manufacture of green-certified building products.
Blocks for the Future are manufactured with up to 40% recycled glass aggregate. After manufacture the blocks are then treated to expose the recycled glass-coloured aggregate on the surface, these finishes have never been seen in the marketplace before and are unique to Island Block & Paving.
The environmental benefits are enormous as natural resourced aggregates such as sand and metal dust, are replaced in manufacture by a potential landfill product. Due to the cementitious value of the finely crushed recycled glass, cement usage is reduced by 10% – therefore importantly reducing CO2 emissions whilst still achieving excellent product strength.
