Glass is a technology that is planetary and thousands of years old. The metallurgy of glass has been mastered for a long time, but discovering its fields of application is still very new: medicine, astrophysics, entrapment of nuclear waste are just the latest so far.
“Whether evolution is pushed by the past or driven by the future, it is with man and his techniques that the universe becomes intelligent”
Glass has qualities that are known and recognised worldwide, its:
Stability over time
PYROGREEN Innovations reuses the natural proprieties of glass to neutralise and transform waste through a widely proven technology that creates zero residues of its own.
It answers multiple environmental challenges by also producing non-fossil, renewable energy.
“In life nothing is to be feared, everything is to be understood”
“The only authentic intellectual act is the invention”
Glass is our friend and opens up to us infinite possibilities…
Glass is perfectly environmentally friendly and can be easily recycled.
“There is nothing easier to melt than what has already been previously melted”
Jacques Proot, inventor of the G3 G4 process
The world expert in metallurgy of non-ferrous materials, Jacques Proot, had the idea in 1995 after observing how glass can “digest” several types of waste that no one knew what to do with.
5 years later, the first patent on a low-carbon gasification process was filed.
