Applications

Endless Opportunities for Innovation 

SiONEER is pleased to offer a wide selection of products for a variety of industries and applications. As our methodology grows and our technology continues to advance, the potential for new and innovative uses for recycled glass products is limitless. While we are currently providing beach sand replenishment, blasting abrasives, cullet, filtration media, glass pozzolan, and organic pesticide, within the coming year we will be releasing 10 new and exciting applications.

Application Spotlight: Glass Pozzolan

Glass pozzolan is a clean, non-toxic replacement to fly ash — a byproduct of coal burning plants containing carbon, heavy metals, and other contaminants. Glass pozzolan in contrast is made from 100% post-consumer recycled material, helping to not only decrease GHG emissions, but due to the chemical composition of the glass powder – amorphous silica – mitigates the risk of Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) while increasing the overall compressive strength of concrete.

Ashpalt

Post-consumer glass that is cleaned, crushed, and screened to be used as a portion of fine aggregate in asphalt paving mixes.

Blasting Abrasives

Glass is ideal abrasive to be used in sand blasting applications as a non-toxic, cost effective, durable, and aggressive media. Produce less dust, without unwanted residue or contaminants, and choose from customizable sizing for both heavy duty industrial work or lighter personal at home projects.

Bricks, Blocks and Pavers

Optimum filler in the production of bricks, blocks, pavers, and cement products with the added benefit of increased compressive strength.

Cement Replacement

Replace up to 40% of your cement mixture for enhanced durability, chlorine permeability, suppression of ASR, and ultra high strength concrete.

Cullet

Optically sorted, premium glass cullet larger than 3/8 of an inch that meets all specifications of the bottle and fiberglass manufactures. Use in traditional glass recycling to be melted and made into new glass and bottle manufacturing, or other uses within the industry. Cleaned, packaged and ready for quick and easy distribution.

DE Replacement

Replace harsh chemicals with an organic pesticide that is similar in nature to diatomaceous earth, but superior in its ability to physically increase plant health and stress resistance due to new SiONEER technology.

Filtration Media

Glass is both a natural and advanced filtration media that can be used in a variety of water based applications. Improve both efficiency and performance by using glass cullet or fines in a variety of sizes for pre and post treatment, and purification of water from heavy metals, waste, pollutants, and chlorine.

Fine-Grind Minerals and Fillers

SiONEER glass powders make for excellent fillers and additives. Cost-effective, environmentally conscious, and energy efficient, our products cover a variety of applications and are available in customized sizes.

Furnace Feedstock

Cleaned, optically sorted, and furnace ready glass that uses approximately 10% less energy to heat the molten state compared to virgin raw materials.

Glass Pozzolan

SiONEER's Centurion makes for a highly reactive glass powder pozzolan that when added to a concrete mix results in ultra high-strength, longer lasting concrete. Increase the compressive strength, mitigate the risk of Alkali Silica Reaction, cracking, and deterioration, and enjoy long term infrastructure savings due to 100 year concrete that is resistant to freeze-thaw cycle, chlorine, and water.

Industrial Water Treatment

Glass not only behaves with the same effluent quality, but outperforms silica sand in generating smaller clean-bed head and clogging head loss. Ideal for industrial and environmental water facilities, SiONEER glass products provide the ultimate water treatment solution.

Organic Gardening

Use for large-scale field crop insect management or at home gardening. Apply directly to fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers to safely manage pest control without causing harm to you or your crops.

Organic Pesticide

A safe and non-toxic alternative for organic farmers looking for a residue-free and effective option that will not only protect their plants from pests, but have no negative side effects on the growers, plants, or soil.

Preserve Marine Life

Sand is the common link between all marine life. Without it, animals quickly die out and become extinct. As glass is made from sand, breaking it down converts it back to a form of its natural state, creating a smooth transition for animals as their habitats are replenished and saved.

Replenish Public Beaches

In Florida alone 90% of the beaches are progressively disappearing. Replenish and restore our nation’s public beaches with a safe, eco-friendly alternative that feels and acts like beach sand.

Restore Private Beaches

Restore previously established beaches or create your own private oasis with glass powder that is completely clean, safe, and looks pristine. For hotels, resorts, beach clubs, or your own backyard.

Roofing Granules

Enjoy long term savings on a high quality mineral product that serves as the optimal aggregate in asphalt and roofing mixes. 

Swimming Pool Filtration

Save time, energy, and money on your swimming pool’s maintenance with a glass based media that has a decreased risk of clogging and requires fewer washes. Keep your pool crystal clear without the excess use of chemicals, and a longer filter life of over 10+ years.
