Sustainable future for brick waste?

There could be a good use for used scrubbers from flue-pipes - and this could save millions of pounds for the brick making industry...

In his speech at SustainabilityLive!, the UK's biggest environmental trade show Jonathan Powell from Pera Innovation said that the brick making industry as a whole could save £20 million a year by recycling the calcium carbonate filters from its flues, the equivalent of £27,000 per brickworks.

That saving is expected to double over the next five years as fuel prices and landfill gate fees continue to rise.
