Last week we shared an innovation that is helping to reduce food waste. Another source of kitchen waste is utilized in these materials: packaging. More specifically: tea bags, juice containers, and glass.
In the video above, Dr. Andrew Dent introduces a number of unique materials that are useful for retail environments and also reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills through recycling.
Curious about the materials?
MC 466502 / StarSilent is a sound absorbing board that is composed of up to 96% post-consumer recycled crushed glass and coated with smooth, sound-permeable plasters with extremely low VOC content, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing and smooth finish.
MC 1067401 / EVERBOARD™ is a high-performance roof cover board designed to provide a durable protective surface for low-slope commercial roofing applications.
MC 1057001 / Tea waste with Jesmonite is a handcrafted, organic material constructed from local tea waste.
