Exploring new sand applications

Together with the design studio Form Us With Love we want to explore the application possibilities of the sand produced as a co-product from the Ash2Phos process, with the aim to create an interest from possible targets in the manufacturing and down sourcing market.

From EasyMining’s Ash2Phos process of turning sewage sludge ash into phosphorus products, a red silica sand is created as a co-product.

Learn more about this project and discover the material's potential below.

Sand is the...

...world’s second most consumed material. Since it is a fossil material, sand does not regenerate in the same pace as we consume it, and the world is facing a crisis of sand shortage. Illegal sand mining is the 3rd biggest crime in the world.

A fine sand...

...is produced in the Ash2Phos process. It contains silica and iron oxide, which gives the sand its reddish hue. The expected amount to be produced per year is up up 45 000 tonnes.

Showcasing products at COP28

Within the Swedish Pavilion, EasyMining presented two circular products, a brownish mud-paint and a sound-absorbing panel, where the red sand plays an essential role as a key ingredient.
