In 2018, the demand of the following construction products exceeded $1.7 Trillion.
Ceramic tile — $697 Billion
Non-ferrous metals — $539 Billion
Construction products — $413 Billion
Industrial gases — $123 Billion
Waste is a source of exponential economic growth…
— Rock wool insulation produced from waste
Using waste to grow the economy
The adoption of more stringent building codes has increased demand for sustainable building materials and practices. USGBC’s “LEED” certification is the global standard leading this drive.
The commercial products manufactured at a Refacture facility will help architects and developers achieve *LEED accreditation for their buildings and yield greater returns for their projects.
No emissions, just products
Synthesis gas is largely comprised of CO and H2. Refacture’s decision on which industrial gas to manufacture will be based on specific market demand and relevant waste composition modelling, ensuring optimum returns.
Refacture’s green hydrogen (H2) is 5 times cheaper than conventional green H2.
Green, industrial grade
Carbon Dioxide —
A very valuable industrial gas, deemed green when derived from non fossil fuel sources.
Industrial gases —
Ability to isolate other industrial gases from synthesis gas.
Due to the high concentration of inorganic content in mixed waste streams, copious volumes of high-quality commercial construction products can be competitively manufactured.
Inorganic materials recovered can be used to produce insulation comparable to mineral wool.
Ceramic Tile —
Specific combination of constituents can produce 100% recycled ceramic tile.
As slag is largely comprised of silica, the process can yield high-quality glass products.
Unlike waste-to-energy operations, chemical manufacturing is not dependent on the BTU value of syngas.
A byproduct of the syngas cleaning process, Sulfur has many commercial uses.
Calcium carbonate —
Suitable building material and an essential component of Portland cement.
