Launched in 2015, Alusid is the result of a research project at the University of Central Lancashire. Setting out to explore ways in which waste and low-value materials destined for landfill could be repurposed into beautiful and versatile surface materials, Professor David Binns and Dr Alasdair Bremner developed Silicastone – an innovative and aesthetically versatile architectural surface material made from glass, ceramics and mineral waste.
Never less than 98% recycled materials.
At Alusid we source unwanted manufacturing materials that others discard. We take those materials and put them through an ingenious, low-impact process to give them a new lease of life. The result is a new kind of material, combining glass and porcelain, to create solid surfaces and tiles with individual character and low environmental impact.
