When I accidentally broke the bowl in my childhood, my grandparents would say, “Happy Dumpling”. “Happy Dumpling” is another expected expression of “Everlasting peace year after year”. “Ear”-“Ear of grain”means harvest, the plate material of “ear” takes recycled aggregate of waste ceramics as the foundation, and gets the fresh beauty and spiritual comfort.
On the one hand, mankind continues to make high consumption of the resources on the earth; but on the other hand, they continuously discharge various pollutants which increase the environmental load, so global disasters ares inevitable.
To contend with the challenges facing the world including climate change and exhaustion of natural resources, sustainable development is increasingly becoming the solution to global problems in the 21st century.
In Chaozhou, Guangdong of China, the rapid development of the ceramic industry is accompanied with the increase in the amount of ceramic waste, and Chaozhou supplies 70% of the total daily-use ceramic commodity for the world, becoming the world’s largest daily-use ceramics production base, it is hard to imagine the number of wasted ceramics behind the production! A recycling plant in Chao’an recovers 1,000 tons of waste ceramics per year. This is not only a cross section of ceramics industry in Chaozhou, but also the aftereffect of uneven global economic development. This is the garbage of China as well as the world.
Sustainable development is not only an environmental issue, but also an approach to comprehensive understanding and decision-making, consisting of security, durability, practicality and economic feasibility, environmental compatibility and social responsibility.
We keep on moving along the way to explore whether there are more possibilities. From the point of view of resource availability, technical and economic feasibility, environmental compatibility and other factors, the wasted daily-use ceramics which can’t be degraded and re-used are smashed for reuse. After the experiment of constant proportion of material, we mix the recycled wasted daily-use ceramics of about 40% with the high-performance concrete prepared, and carry out mass production. With the surface ground and polished, the product is very expressive.
Wall and floor decoration materials are the largest part of building materials. From the perspective of huge demand, we involve recycled materials into it, so as to truly consume non-biodegradable ceramics and make the real impact on social reality.
We provide two kinds of aggregate collocation style, of which one is made up of 8 colors, wasted ceramics are scattered freely and full of tension, suitable for wall use; the other one is made up of 4 colors, the wasted daily-use ceramics are smashed and classified in a more careful manner, and then carried out the the size and particle proportion, the ceramics particles on the surface are well-proportioned, firm and fine-grained, more excellent in the anti-pollution performance, more suitable for ground use, which can meet the needs of all kinds of space collocation. It is also the ultimate goal of our experiment to make the recycled material reenter our daily life with the product as the carrier.
Bentu is global, creativity without boundaries!
