The Future Is Secure – The Future Is Clay
Plasmor view the use of expanded clay as the key to the sustainable and ecological future of concrete block manufacture as it absolves the need for expensive and unreliable imports and lowers the use of virgin, hard, quarried aggregates such as limestone, granite, sand and gravel. We expand the clay to 5 times its original volume. This represents a significant environmental advantage over alternative virgin quarried aggregates. This is because for one tonne of clay quarried, once expanded in Plasmor’s unique expanded clay plant, the volume multiplies to five times. With all the other quarried aggregates, one tonne quarried equals one tonne used thus 80% less material is quarried. The unique characteristics of Plasmor expanded clay afford Plasmor enviable flexibility when mixing with a variety of recycled aggregates, to achieve all of the necessary block density ranges required for all applications in all sectors of construction. Concurrent with the expansion of expanded clay production, the Company have acquired secure, long term, consented reserves of the very specific clay required to process, assuring the market of secure, sustainable supply of Building Blocks.
