Recycled CRT Panel Glass as an Energy Reducing Fluxing Body Additive in Heavy Clay Construction Products
Approximately 105,000 tonnes of waste CRT glass is available annually; this project set out to investigate the potential use of the panel glass ie the lead-free glass. It was proposed to:
- Investigate the potential benefits of using CRT panel glass as fluxing body additive (following on from a previous WRAP-funded brick industry project)
- Undertake testing to assess the blending potential for CRT panel glass with mixed colour container glass
This report specifically covers the results of the laboratory testing undertaken by Glass Technology Services. The project was originally designed for trials of the manufacturing processes; however the project was terminated before the trials could be completed so evaluation of the benefits of the use of CRT glass as a fluxing additive still needs to be undertaken in a full scale production environment.
