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
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.
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.
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.
