Leadax creates building materials with a future, not of the future
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is the plastic foil in safety glass which could not be reused, until now. There is an abundance of PVB waste available worldwide. In Europe alone, 1.5 billion kilograms of PVB waste are added to this enormous pile of plastic waste. Every year. For comparison: This is the weight of 150 Eiffel towers. Besides that, current products for waterproofing buildings are not sustainable, have a large carbon footprint and are (often) toxic. If we want to reach the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations in creating a sustainable environment, this problem has to be solved.
