Fossilization of non-recyclable waste

Our Fossilization process works with non-recyclable, non-inert and non-hazardous waste such as ordinary industrial waste from deconstruction.

These waste materials, which would normally go to landfill or incineration, are given a new life by Néolithe.

The three-stage waste Fossilization process

Stage 1

Waste material

Of the various types of non-recyclable waste, the Fossilizator® can take ordinary industrial waste, such as plastics, textiles, wood, plaster and even insulation material. Metals, however, are removed from the process for reuse in the relevant industrial sector.

Stage 2


After being introduced into the Fossilizator®, the non-recyclable, non-inert and non-hazardous waste is transformed, via an emission-free process, into a waste shredding containing low-carbon binder. This binder, whose formula is confidential, is essential to ensure the inertia of the waste and give it a coherent mineral structure.

Stage 3

Anthropocite® aggregates

The new mineral, which we call Anthropocite®, has the same technical and mechanical characteristics as those of traditional aggregates, the most widely-consumed raw material in France at 450 million tonnes per year. Anthropocite® aggregates created by Accelerated Fossilization can be used in road sub-bases and concrete. Néolithe’s process adds value to stone, a material that has now been reinvented and has established a place for itself in modern industry.
