Foam Glass Aggregate Manufacturing Facility

Industry: Manufacturing
Company: Aero Aggregates
Year Installed: 2017
How do you turn an undesirable waste product – glass from municipal recycling – into a valuable commodity? The folks at Aero Aggregates created a unique solution to this very big problem. Their vision: Build a foam glass plant to turn glass cullet into a light-weight, highly porous material that is highly desirable for use in road construction, agriculture, and many other applications.
To help turn that vision into reality, Aero Aggregates selected AES to take the lead in front end engineering design (FEED) and project management. Once designed, our role expanded to include installation of system components, the design of supplementary systems for glass unloading, cleaning, and bulk storage, fabrication of silos and support structures, coordination of heavy power, and the installation of gas utilities.  Our talented team of engineering designers, technicians, millwrights, welders, project managers and support staff worked closely with the staff at Aero and the European furnace and kiln suppliers to manage every detail. The project was successfully commissioned in May of 2017.
