Biofuel Waste is Bliss

The Biofuel Waste is Bliss project redefines the use of ashes from bioenergy waste streams, creating new environmentally-friendly materials and functional architectural products, such as ceramic glazing for tiles and bricks. Through close collaboration with scientists, the project avoids greenwashing and substantiates its sustainable claims. By incorporating up to 55% ash content in ceramic glazes and clay bodies, the project aims to replace the need for newly extracted materials, thereby reducing CO2 emissions. Additionally, the project evaluates the sustainability of ceramic materials, effectively reducing the environmental impact of ceramic production and providing sustainable alternatives for architects and interior designers.
