The only eco-sustainable glass foam produced in Italy at km 0
SAVELPOR 50 is produced using waste glass otherwise destined for landfills, therefore it protects the environment, is completely ecological and optimizes the product life cycle. With the reuse of waste, new precious raw materials are not consumed, energy is saved, CO2 emissions are reduced while respecting the climate and resources are conserved, with a double benefit: economic and environmental.
Eco-friendly, Eco-sustainable, Recyclable
SAVELPOR 50 goes beyond the concept of traditional economy “take, produce, throw away”, representing the new sustainability model “Reuse, Reduce, Recycle” guaranteeing a life cycle whereby someone’s waste becomes a resource for someone else.
“Every end is a new beginning” is in fact the principle on which the circular economy is based. Unlike other materials that must be sent to landfill at the end of their life, SAVELPOR 50 is totally inert and can be recycled countless times, all for the benefit of the environment.
What it is and how it is done
SAVELPOR 50 is a glass foam obtained by expanding glass powder at high temperature (800 ° C) which comes from the recovery of glass cullet otherwise destined for landfill, suitably treated and with additives. At this temperature the glass “foams” and exits the oven as cellular glass.
Coming out of the oven, in contact with the air, the glass foam breaks independently into centimetric size, which contains a huge amount of air inside, responsible for the excellent characteristics of insulation and lightness.
