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.
ı am a student at 4th class of a high tech. institute of İzmir.Since 2 years have been working on develeoping of cellular glass in Turkish market but there are some important problems such as investment costs, product cost compare to others, waste glass recycling etc.Nowadays i am trying to solve all. I need your experience and can you help me sir?
Of course we help. You should visit the GLAPOR factory in Germany.
Can the new generation silicate foams be a strong alternative to foam glass.?
The behaviour of silicate foam is same but structure is different acc.tofoam glass.
The literature is confirming the mentioned situation.
