Team Aggregate + Glass chose to tackle the current annual 200,000 tonnes of Glass Construction waste.
Initially, the team discussed ideas on what the waste could be used for, such as interlocking recycled glass blocks and recycled Spandrel panels.
Through research and networking with Flat Glass Manufacturers such as Saint Gobain, Guardian Glass and URM, they focused their ideas on how to improve the recycling process.
Their product GlassPass is an Environmental certification service.
Which aims to exaggerate the upcycling process through the gathering and storing of glass property data on current and new façade glass stock to ensure the products are recycled at the end of the products life cycle. Find out more how this is done here:

'GLASS + AGGREGATE INSTAGRAM TAKEOVERS
The 'Glass + Aggregate' team has been working away at home focussing on how glass recycling can be further integrated in the construction industry.
GlassPass is a database that stores the genetic makeup of glass products. The product ‘DNA’ is tracked by a license imprinted on the glass’s surface.
