Processing of recycled glass

  • Prodexim, as a proud partner of the SAQ / Université de Sherbrooke Research Chair, develops innovative and high-performance grinding agents aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of grinding and the production of high added-value glass powders.

  • The industrial use of grinded glass is limited however, by its high production energy cost as well as its intrinsic properties that make it incompatible with numerous industrial products (rubber, paint, etc.). The treatments required to make it compatible are unavoidable and complex.

  • Prodexim aims at resolving these issues and is committed at finding innovative solutions that are economical, simple and ecological.
