Turning Recycled Glass into a Unique Ultra-Lightweight Construction Material
Aero Aggregates of North America manufactures Ultra-lightweight Foamed Glass Aggregate (UL-FGA) for use on DOT, commercial development, and residential projects. UL-FGA are ultra-lightweight aggregates produced from 100% post-consumer recycled glass. The aggregates are an ideal lightweight backfill because they are highly frictional, non-reactive, and insulating in addition to their low unit weight and high permeability. The manufacturing process converts recycled glass cullet that would otherwise be disposed of in a landfill into a non-leaching, rot-resistant, non-flammable and durable construction material. Current geotechnical challenges require construction on soft soils, reduction of lateral earth pressures, decreased loads on structures, and the protection of tunnels and underground utilities. The unique properties of UL-FGA addresses these challenges and is a sustainable solution through the beneficial reuse of glass containers and the reduction of the number of trucks bringing fill to a project site. Additionally, UL-FGA is installed quickly and easily leading to accelerated construction. This presentation will include a brief history of UL-FGA, a description of the manufacturing process, and an explanation of the product properties and applications.
