Reused bricks significantly reduce the amount of building waste that is generated, and brick reuse in buildings saves the environment significant amounts of the CO2 used for producing new bricks. Everytime you replace a new brick with a reused brick, you save the environment 0,5 kg CO2. Therefore, Gamle Mursten upcycles bricks to create more beautiful buildings and to save the world from the CO2 emissions caused by the production of new bricks. Through a patented technology, Gamle Mursten ensures that demolition waste can be cleaned and the bricks reused.
Since 2003, Gamle Mursten has continuously developed the brick cleaning technology, which we call the REBRICK process, while supplying reused bricks to all of Denmark. It exploits the huge reuse potential of used bricks through automated sorting of demolition wastes; separation of old bricks and cleaning the bricks using vibrational rasping, making each brick ready for reuse.
In our production, the old bricks are cleaned, manually sorted and stabled by a robot; we sell to new construction as well as renovation of existing buildings where the builder wants to save the environment from CO2.
