In 2014 Energocell Kft. has set itself the goal to process waste glass into foam glass. As a first step in achieving this goal we established a research and development laboratory in Debrecen. The aim is to re-utilize waste glass by increasing its environmental value, which is known as upcycling. From a pollutant that otherwise negatively impacts the environment we produce a useful insulating material, the foam glass.
The Energocell® foam glass granules are tested and qualified according to the strictest European regulations governing product certification.
However, the mission of our research and development laboratory hasn't been fulfilled by the launching of the foam glass granules production, but it continues with the development of new and innovative solutions.
The research work of the laboratory started in 2014. Since then with the collaboration of specialists from the country and abroad we have developed the technical and professional background for launching the production plant which provides the framework for the continuous research.
For the scope of manufacturing and selling thermally insulating foam glass products for building purposes we have introduced and run a quality control system and an environmental management system. Proof has been furnished by means of an audit, that the system complies with the requirements of the MSZ EN ISO 9001:2015 and MSZ EN ISO 14001:2015 standards.
