Green Glass Powder
•Green Glass Powder (GG-Powder) is an eco-friendly product which used agricultural wastes as the raw material.
•Recycling of agricultural wastes as a raw material for GG-Powder hugely reduce the unnecessary materials on land and reducing the disposal
•“Green” is drawn from the idea that the glass is both economical as well as ecological.
•Ecological means the recycling process of agricultural wastes as raw materials for GG-Powder will hugely reduce the unnecessary materials on
•Besides disposal cost reduction, it is economical because the usage of 60-80% agricultural waste as the main ingredient in the formula.
•This invention explored the potential of agricultural wastes (palm ash, rice husk & long coarse grass) as one of the glass ingredient since there is
existence of silica and flux in palm ash composition which needed in glass formation.
The large appearance of the ash produced after combustion creates a disposal problem for the palm oil industry. Since open field or pile burning is
increasingly being banned because of the air pollution problem, empty fruit bunch is barely used and creates problem associated with its disposal.
Therefore, another option for disposing them is needed. This invention contributes to saving the invironment from the abundance agricultural waste
especially in term of burning activity.
