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.
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®.
