2020 Innovation Name: BluCem ZeoGlass®
Awards: Most Innovative Manufacturing & Consumer Goods Company
BluCem ZeoGlass is a highly acid resistant concrete which can withstand aggressive environments, such as Australia’s sewers, for up to three times as long as regular concrete.
ZeoGlass is made from 60% recycled materials, including the glass that Australian’s put in their yellow bin every week. After China banned imports of Australian recycled materials in 2018, large stockpiles of glass were left abandoned. Understanding that glass is totally resistant to corrosion when used with the ZeoGlass formulation, we substituted environmentally damaging sand for recycled glass in our concrete.
ZeoGlass increases the life of the sewer liner from 10-15 years to 40-50 years and Bluey predicts that if Sydney Water adopted ZeoGlass in their sewers, they could exhaust all existing glass stockpiles in NSW within two years!
