Waste mineral wool could be used for improved building mortar
Once buildings are removed,vast waste mineral wool insulation materials will be dumped to waste yard.
However,according to newest study,these waste materials could be used for improved building mortar.
This study is from Scientists from Universidad Politecnica de Madrid Poland Bialystok University of Technology .They are trying to find a new usage for waste wool.They are want to use these material to replace half mortar to connect bricks.
What is their advantage? Their density is lower than common mortar.Their property of thermal insulation is much better.Mineral wool’s toughness is better.They could bend bigger without broken.This is a very Environmentally friendly solution.
