Mineral wool waste back to loop with advanced sorting, pre-treatment, and alkali activation

Project description

Mineral wool finds a second life in novel construction products

Mineral wool (stone wool and glass wool) is a non-metallic inorganic fibrous product formed by spinning or drawing molten stone or silica and binding it with resins and oils. Despite being the most widely used form of insulation in the EU, it is generally not recycled at a building's end-of-life. As the construction and demolition sectors move towards a more circular economy, revalorising mineral wool is an important step. The EU-funded WOOL2LOOP project is developing technologies to achieve that, including on-site in situ analyses and smart demolition, improved pre-treatment for smaller particles and novel processing methods, leading to new cement based building material products such as concrete, pavement slabs, building facade elements and acoustic panels.
