This project explores the applications for fired ceramic rejects at industries, developing seventy percent recycled ceramic wares. Under this project a universal material has been developed that reuses the waste ceramic wares from industries to manufacture value-added products, irrespective of their scale, form and application. These wares once coated with a fresh layer of glaze become 100% food safe. The process paves way for a closed-loop manufacturing that adheres to the principles of circular economy. Hence, using waste as raw material for multiple cycles without degrading the quality of materials.
