Nu-Rock technology has the proven capability to incorporate household waste-rubbish such as plastics, paper and glass into Nu-Rock products Pavers and Aggregates. Blended with industrial waste material such as coal ash, steel dusts and slags or even alumina red muds, Nu-Rock products containing shredded or crushed household waste materials maintain superior performance over concrete-based products.
Nu-Rock technology represents an exciting solution to the global problem of finding large scale household ‘waste’ applications. Working with local governments and waste management companies, Nu-Rock is developing strategic partnerships and product solutions designed to feed circular economies and to reduce domestic waste stockpiling.
Another significant breakthrough for the domestic waste management industry is that Nu-Rock technology can utilise the bottom ash which is a bi-product of incinerating non-recyclables. The ‘engineered rock’ that Nu-Rock’s patented process creates, permanently locks up and neutralizes any potentially toxic elements, thus making this material safe for repurposing as aggregates for use in road building and mine void back filling.
