The Sustainable Products for the Future range is manufactured with up to 40% recycled glass aggregate, which is a by-product derived from recycled glass container bottles. The environmental benefits are enormous as natural resourced aggregates such as sand and metal dust, are replaced in manufacture by a problem landfill product. Due to the cementitious value of the finely crushed recycled glass, cement usage is reduced by 10% – therefore importantly reducing CO2 emissions.
