Foamit foam glass’s raw material is recycled glass, which is cleaned and milled before being heated in the furnace. Due to the manufacturing technique, it does not contain organic substances and is non-flammable. It is odourless, inert and does not leach harmful substances in conventional applications.
Using recycled glass as a raw material saves virgin natural resources and reduces the carbon footprint. Foamit is reusable and can be upcycled.
The risk assessment in our Finnish report shows that the use of Foamit for fill material and / or frost insulation of road, street and field structures will not cause significant groundwater pollution.
