Waste glass in a designer product

Designer items made from construction rubble and waste glass

CEMENTUM (www.cementum.cz) from Ivančice is involved in producing sustainable concrete products with an emphasis on design and the maximum use of scrap material. As such, it has also entered into cooperation with Preciosa Ornela and taken delivery of several hundred kilograms of glass shards for the preparation of samples for testing.

The company is constantly expanding its basic product portfolio. It is the first in Europe to offer the upcycling of construction rubble and glass shards in designer items with a high added value. The products come with a certificate stating the building from where the construction rubble was taken.

The products from Cementum are manufactured from concrete, where natural aggregate has been fully replaced with recycled construction and demolition rubble. The company uses all types of inert material for its production; bricks, concrete, ceramics, roof tiles and various types of coloured glass which give the products a unique appearance after they have been surface finished.

Cementum processes recycled glass from Preciosa in its designer products. The products are then ground and polished so that the glass stands out and gives the products a unique appearance. The processing of the glass is currently the greatest challenge, because the glass has to remain in the concrete during grinding and it must not break. 

Concrete products with shards from Preciosa Onely

As can be seen from the pictures, the glass gives the products a unique design.

Their concrete products achieve the same utility parameters as products made from natural resources and their resistance to climatic influences means that they can be used in both interiors and exteriors.

The shards from our glassworks do not have to end up as waste, but can continue to serve! Take a look at how Cementum uses these shards to produce beautiful items from construction rubble and waste glass.
