The circular economy group EcoUp has received a patent in Finland for its innovation, which enables energy-efficient grinding and filtration of mineral wool into a new raw material. In addition, an international patent application is pending, which is now based on and granted priority in Finland.
The company plans to license the patented technology to companies providing recycling and waste management services.
We are very proud of our development work. Our patented equipment for processing mineral wool waste enables new business for operators in the recycling and waste management industry. The processing of mineral wool waste has been very difficult and energy-consuming, so its reusability has been almost non-existent in the past. We have now solved this problem, says the company’s CEO Antti Ollikainen.
The powder, made from mineral wool waste and produced with EcoUp’s patented equipment, is suitable for e.g. to replace cement. The verified carbon footprint of recycled raw material produced by the equipment is less than 10% of the carbon footprint of traditional cement.
