Torxx Kinetic, Inc. is excited to announce that we have signed a new partnership agreement with Opta Glass, a division of Opta Group LLC and Opta Waterdown Inc.

Opta Group is a leading North American supplier of performance materials and solutions in the molten metal, infrastructure, and specialty chemical industries, including a newly designed supplementary cementitious material made from the waste glass generated at waste and recycling facilities, also known as “MRF Glass“. Our TORXX Kinetic Pulverizer® technology plays an integral part in OPTA’s confidential processing apparatus, and we are excited to be part of OPTA’s success.     

This newly manufactured Premium Ground Glass Pozzolan material will help to dramatically reduce the amount of Portland-cement needed to prepare high-quality concrete and provide a new option to replace traditional supplementary cementitious materials such as fly-ash, blast-furnace slag and silica fume. Traditional cementitious materials are in diminished supply or the production/use poses increasing environmental concern.

The production of Portland-cement used in concrete is responsible for approximately 7% of total global CO2 emissions, so replacing a portion of the Portland-cement with post-consumer ground glass can significantly reduce concrete’s carbon footprint. As a bonus, ground-glass pozzolans make use of a readily available regional waste material that is often landfilled instead of recycled, and it can be used in place of fly ash (which can contain toxic heavy metals), ground granulated blast furnace slag, and silica fume, all of which are byproducts of carbon-intensive industries.

Processed into a fine powder, ground glass pozzolans can replace up to 40% of Portland-cement in a mix, creating a stronger, denser, less permeable, and more durable concrete while making use of a readily available, inert waste material. Pozzolans such as ground glass can also improve concrete’s workability and freeze/thaw resistance.

About TORXX Kinetic Inc.

TORXX Kinetic Inc. is a leader in waste management and recycling technology. The TORXX Kinetic Pulverizer® (TKP) (patents and patents pending) is a new generation of equipment in waste management and recycling technology. It right-sizes a recycler’s output and lowers its cost of ownership with a more reliable and durable technology. The TKP is a powerful machine that smashes input materials against themselves at high speed, thereby pulverizing hard materials and tearing softer materials into a fluff, creating a smaller output than traditional shredding equipment.

The TKP process results in increased revenue through streamlined processes and a homogenised output that increases the value of the end product. As a result, it can also reduce costs for many materials processing applications, such as waste-to-energy processes, construction & demolition, composting and materials recycling. The multi feedstock capability of the TKP makes it an economical choice when used to process different feed stocks on a single site rather than having to use two or more traditional machines to achieve the same outcome.
