Glass is an inert, endlessly recyclable material, yet it is all too often sent to landfills throughout Australia never to be reused or recycled. Typically, because of a lack of viable local end-users. Recovered glass sand is one potential product that can be derived from recycled glass containers. Recently, Icon Water has approved recovered glass sand for use as pipe embedment on its sewer network. Similar products can also be widely used for other infrastructure and civil engineering applications.
Come and hear Joel Edwards, Sustainability and Resource Recovery Coordinator at ICON Water, discuss the journey from concept to reality, looking at product development, product specification, key requirements, and product uptake while highlighting the key lessons learnt along the way and detailing the future for the product.
