Construction Waste Transformed into New Bricks

In the EU, construction waste accounts for one-third of all waste generated. StoneCycling is taking steps to reduce that waste, using material from old construction projects to produce bespoke bricks with unique colours, shapes, and textures. The inputs for the products are waste ceramics, glass, and insulation, as well as rejected clay from traditional brick manufacturing – all locally sourced. Reusing materials diverts construction waste from landfill and reduces the demand for virgin materials. The company has bold plans for 2018 and aims to upcycle more than 1,000 tonnes of waste into new bricks.
