FOAM GLASS AGGREGATE 0-60 mm
Foam glass aggregate 0-60 mm is a pumice like aggregate that is used by the infrastructure and construction industries as a lightweight fill material. Foam glass aggregate is manufactured from waste glass cullets, and a foaming agent (typically silicon carbide). Foam glass production prevents landfilling of “reject glass” generated at glass recycling plants. Any organic matter impurities in the raw material combusts in the production process, therefore there is no organic matter in the foam glass product. Foam glass is non-flammable and has good water conductivity properties. Thanks to its foamed cell structure, foam glass aggregate provides excellent thermal insulation. The foam glass aggregate’s flexible settling properties and angle of repose ensure a robust substructure on the worksite.

Included products in this EPD
This EPD covers the representative product of foam glass aggregate produced at Foamit Group’s (4) different production sites located in Finland, Sweden and Norway. From each production site one representative product has been analysed with the goal of obtaining an average virtual product. The declared performance characteristics of the 4 representative products are presented in Annex A. Results of the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) will be presented for the average virtual product.
