Kaneks Group won the tender for the development of a recipe for the Norilsk supply complex.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The use of crushed foam glass can prevent the melting of permafrost, preserve and restore it. It is a closed-cell heat-insulating material intended for heat and sound insulation of building structures for various purposes.

“The possibility of using foam glass crushed stone for industrial facilities in the Far North can be considered much more broadly”, said Alexander Meshkov, project manager for the construction industry of Kaneks Technology JSC. “Foam glass can be used for the bedding layer in the construction of strip and slab foundations, as well as in the overhaul and construction of roads and railways, which will eliminate annual repairs.

He added that crushed foam glass can also be used for working out ventilated underground floors of already erected buildings and structures.

The greatest interest as a raw material for the production of foam glass crushed stone in Norilsk is glass granules obtained at the Norilsk building materials and structures plant in the process of manufacturing mineral wool, tuffargelites of the Kayerkansky deposit, as well as industrial and household cullet formed in Norilsk.
