Prof. Elena Yatsenko has a chair at the Platov South-Russian State Polytechnic University (NPI) in Russia. While the universities of Aalborg, Ljubljana and St. Petersburg are recycling glass, prof. Yatsenko is converting slag into cellular glass.
I found the following publications:
- Foamed slag glass – eco-friendly insulating material based on slag waste.
- RESOURCE-CONSERVING TECHNOLOGY OF HEAT-INSULATION-DECORATIVE GLASS-COMPOSITE MATERIAL BASED ON ASH-SLAG WASTES
- PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL PROPERTIES AND STRUCTURE OF FOAMED SLAG GLASS BASED ON THERMAL POWER PLANT WASTES
- INVESTIGATION OF THE FACTORS INFLUENCING THE PROPERTIES AND STRUCTURE OF FOAMED SLAG GLASS
- Investigation of the Raw Materials’ Composition and Ratio Influence on the Structure and Properties of the Foamed Slag Glass
- Investigation of A Porous Structure Formation Mechanism of a Foamed Slag Glass Based On the Glycerol Foaming Mixture
- Investigation of flux influence on structure of foamed slag glass with a high content of slag waste
- Foamed slag glass – unique insulating material
- Investigation of the Influence of Foaming Agents’ Type and Ratio on the Foaming and Reactionary Abilities of Foamed Slag Glass
- FOAMED GLASS BASED ON SLAG WASTES
Today, most of the recycled glass is used for the standard glass industry and a minor part, which cannot be recycled for bottles and windows is today used for cellular glass. However, reusing slag waste for cellular glass is a new step in the recycling industry. Today, slag is used in the cement industry and also slag wool can be produced for thermal insulation. But it seems that a new future, namely cellular slag is arriving. Indeed, glass powder for foaming should be at least 10 times more expensive than slag powder.
