The clock is ticking.
We have reached the limits of the planet’s natural resources.
Our Greentech company processes waste from power plants into a substitute for quickly depleted natural sand.
Unsustainable use of natural resources is having a severe impact on our environment. With the megatrend of urbanization and the increasing number of people living in cities, it is expected that natural resources such as sand and aggregates, and even clean drinking water will continue to be depleted without replenishment.
A case in point is sand mining or dredging, which has a major impact on rivers, deltas and coastal and marine ecosystems, results in loss of land through river or coastal erosion, lowering of the water table and decrease in the amount of sediment supply.
We have ‘reached the limits’ of the planet’s natural resources
ZaaK has been researching and developing innovative technologies to upcycle mineral wastes and by-products into value-added products for sustainable management of our natural resources
With its proprietary technologies, ZaaK offers a single step solution to the environmental impacts from mineral wastes and by-products and fast depleting natural sand by upcycling the former into eco-friendly lightweight fine aggregates, called Lypors™. These lightweight fine aggregates are a substitute for natural sand and serve as a basis for secondary raw materials, which will conserve natural resources by constructing buildings with high resource and energy efficiency, lighter weight, and extended service life.
As a Greentech company and a pioneer in up-cycling, ZaaK envisions the establishment of a new standard for secondary raw materials on the global market.
The challenges faced by producers of mineral wastes and by-products require viable and forward-looking solutions. To safeguard our socio-economic future, technologies that promote the achievement of sustainable development goals and veer towards circular economy are greatly needed.
ZaaK is providing a progressive solution to the age-old problem of wastes and by-products, drastically reducing disposal problems, and pushing the above industries towards a zero-waste scenario through upcycling these wastes and by-products into high performance building materials.
ZaaK offers technological solutions to the thermal power, alumina, waste-to-energy and construction industries for their mineral wastes and by-products. ZaaK’s processes ensure these wastes and by-products can be effectively utilized instead disposed or deposited.
From the sources to Lypors™ and Smart Spheres™
As a Greentech company and a pioneer in upcycling, ZaaK envisions the establishment of a new standard for secondary raw materials on the global market.
Coal combustion ash
Our Lypors® technology is extremely versatile and can handle any types of coal combustion products whether they are freshly produced or deposited, hard coal ash, brown coal ash or a mixture of both ashes.
Biomass-coal co-combustion ashes
Our Lypors® technology is extremely versatile and handles biomass-coal co- combustion products whether they are freshly produced or deposited.
Incineration ash (work in progress)
ZaaK is one of the first companies which started to develop a solution for incineration ash, also known as waste-to-energy ash, which to a large part until now has been deposited underground.
Our Smart Spheres® technology is extremely versatile and can handle any type of bauxite residue streams whether they are freshly produced or deposited.
