Gamle Mursten is a cleantech company that removes waste from the natural environment. Thanks to a patented cleaning technology, Gamle Mursten ensures that building waste can be recycled. Old bricks are cleaned, sorted manually and stacked by robots and sold for new building and renovation projects where clients want to minimize the impact of unnecessary CO2 emissions on the environment, as well as wanting brickwork with patina and character.
The old bricks often come from buildings dating back to 1900-1960. These bricks went through an old-fashioned ring oven, where the coal helped to give the clay a unique spectrum of colours. The old-fashioned production process and deference to the craftmanship has helped to give the bricks a long lifespan.
