BRITISH manufacturer Alusid, whose groundbreaking technology turns ceramics and glass waste into stylish tiles and worktops, is finalising a £1million-plus investment deal as it scales up plans for a bigger factory and mass production.
Instead of toilets and sinks being discarded post-production and old glass all ending up in landfill, the company’s founders Dr Alasdair Bremner and Professor David Binns have now developed a patented process that recycles them into a new material, SilicaStone.
The innovation’s breakthrough has been to create the technology from the two different industries. The result is a sustainable composite that, because it has no resins or glues, is recyclable.
As at 30 June 2016, Frontier IP Group Plc have a 39% holding in Alusid Limited.
