Adding to the raft of innovative eco companies featured here on Tile Addict is Alusid, formed in 2015 after research at the University of Central Lancashire which investigated ways that waste could be repurposed into surface materials. The result was Silicastone, a new durable material which is made from 98% minimum of glass, ceramics and mineral waste.
Five tile collections and two surface solutions are offered on their site, each range exploring the unique and varied look of Silicastone. Incline was developed to be used on larger projects and the shape is designed to become a dramatic feature when downlit.
Alusid produces a new material made from recycled glass and ceramics, sourced from industrial waste, to provide an attractive and adaptable alternative to natural stone. As of 30 June 2016 , Frontier IP Group Plc (LON:FIPP) have a 39% holding in Alusid.
