Glass Blocks

Glass brick, also known as glass block, is an architectural element made from glass. Glass bricks provide visual obscuration while admitting light.
The glass block was originally developed in the early 1900s to provide natural light in manufacturing plants. Solid glass bricks are a revolutionary building material and will enable future cityscapes and urban experiences that were previously unimaginable. Not only is it totally aesthetically innovative, but a brick made of glass also radically reduces the amount of waste materials. All of the glass is completely recyclable and any imperfect bricks can be melted and remoulded. The entire building could be melted down, resurrected and given a new life. A glass brick is also – interestingly – stronger than a concrete one.

Recycle Waste Glass Using Excess Heat

Collection of waste glass discarded in the reion surrounding the Power Station, this glass usually destined for disposal in a landfill tip, is an environmental hazard. By sending it to the Power Station for recycling into somethin useful and re-usable, massively benefits the environment. Using the excess heat from the Suxé burner, which would normally be discarded to the atmosphere. This heat can be used by sending it to a glass smelter. Recycled glass can be fed into the smelter and melted, all colours of glass when melted go clear as the colours are burnt from the glass. the molten glass can be set in moulds to make the glass bricks.
A cheap and environmentally friendly building block, stronger than concrete.

Building houses

Stronger than using concrete.
Construction is exactly the same as using conventional cLay brick. During the moulding process one side of the brick is given a rough surface, which is built into the mould. The bricks are layed by a brick layer using the same mortar as clay bricks or a special glass glue can be substituted in those instances wher the mortar is required to be invisible. For standard houses, once the walls are buillt, normal plaster is applied to the rough surfaces of the glass blocks which were created during the moulding process. For see through walls blocks remain unplastered, for applications requiring visibility a special brick is used where the mould does not imprint a rough surface but leaves the moulded brick smooth and see through. For applications that require light but the wall is not required to be see through, a standard brick with it rough sides (unplastered) is used.
