About novagg®

Pilot plant in Staffordshire, UK

novagg® is an innovative and sustainable lightweight structural aggregate for use in the international construction materials market, principally in concrete products.

 

The specification of novagg® is market-leading in terms of density, strength and water absorption.

 

The novagg® process makes aggregate from up to 98% recycled waste using global standard rotary kiln technology, transforming the wastes into a new material, as has been confirmed by Imperial College London.

 

The firing temperature of novagg® is reduced by some 400 degrees Celsius from existing processes with a much reduced firing time than normal. This substantially reduces carbon footprint.

 

Single pellet (enlarged)

The novagg® process can take different waste streams so that we are not dependent upon specific suppliers.

 

novagg® pellets can be engineered according to customer requirements.

 

In summary novagg®  is lightweight, strong, has a vitreous/closed pore structure giving low water absorption. Additionally it is amorphous, insulating and versatile.

 

Lightweight concrete products containing novagg® should be fully recyclable.

 

An international patent application has been made for novagg®.
