By experimenting with variety of ashes, Daria Biryukova continues her research project on ceramic glazes. She was inspired by traditional recipes from Middle East and extended this knowledge with experiments on biological waste provided by Renewi Mineralz. Forz granules – bottom ash is produced from specially selected and processed mineral residues, released during combustion processes and separation of household waste. It is a sustainable product that has been already used in concrete industry and civil engineering as directly usable alternative for sand and gravel. The work on future implementation of Forz in ceramic mass production carried out by Daria Biryukova, will be shown during Il salone del mobile milano 2018.
FORZ® are guaranteed sustainable raw materials that Mineralz recovers from mineral residues. FORZ® is used in concrete products and projects in the ground, road and hydraulic engineering (GWW). The use of FORZ® leads to a reduction of the use of primary materials and makes products with FORZ®inside circular.
Daria Biryakova, together with Mineralz, has developed an application of FORZ® in the ceramic industry which resulted in the new material FORZ®Glaze. In developed recipes, cleaned AEC bottom ash, among other ingredients, is used and can be applied on both fine and coarse ceramic products. Based on the wishes of the market, Daria Biryukova can adapt the
FORZ®Glaze recipe and the pigments to be used in order to create the right color and shine. The products and articles produced with FORZ® Glaze are suitable for consumer purposes and meet the applicable environmental requirements.
