Stone Cycling - Waste Based Bricks

MARLBORO, N.J. - Jan. 31, 2018 - PRLog -- A Dutch company has developed a brick composed of industrial, construction and demolition waste materials. StoneCycling was founded in 2013 by Tom van Soest after learning that construction and demolition debris accounts for 65% of his country's generated waste. Though much of this debris is recycled as base aggregate for roadways and other applications, van Soest wanted to find a way to increase the potential of demolition waste by turning it into a new building material.

After much experimentation with various combinations of concrete aggregate and other ground and crushed demolition waste materials – ceramic tiles, glass, insulation, etc. – van Soest came up with sturdy, stable WasteBasedBricks in a wide variety of textures and colors. StoneCycling is working to make a circular economy a reality through upcycling, the process of transforming waste materials into new materials of better quality, in contrast to the typical downcycling of demolition waste.

Waste Based Bricks are increasingly being used in the private homes and businesses of clients with a keen interest in environmental sustainability. StoneCycling has announced plans to up-cycle a million kg of waste in 2018 for the exterior of buildings. Though the product has not crossed the Atlantic as of yet, there growing interest here in the United States, where hundreds of millions of tons of construction and demolition waste is generated each year.
