WasteBasedSlips®: Sustainable in Production and Transport.
Application of WasteBasedSlips® (Custom Nougat, Pistachio and Orange, all in a 50/50 mix of Raw and Sliced finish) in the facades of the three buildings of the multifunctional complex means the reuse of 18 kilos of high-quality waste per square meter of facade cladding. For all facades together, the counter rises to 385,519 kilos. And that is also the amount of raw material savings.
Unlike traditional production, StoneCycling extracts four brick slips from one brick, instead of two. This means that the material is used in its entirety and there is no waste. In addition, the CO2 emissions from the production of this WasteBasedBrick® are compensated by planting trees. In the future, the aim is to make the firing process CO2 neutral and switch to hydrogen.
Sustainability is also key during the transport of the 11,000 square meters of brick slips to the site. For example, the strips are not packed in Styrofoam, but in reusable plastic crates that used to transport groceries. The empty crates are taken back with every delivery. This prevents trucks from driving empty kilometers.
