HOW IT STARTED
GLASS WASTE STATISTICS
According to the National Environment Agency (NEA) in Singapore – only 11% of Glass was recycled from the 66,000 tonnes originally produced in 2020! (National Environment Agency, 2021)
WHERE DOES THE WASTE GO?
The remaining glass that has not been recycled – 89% goes into the Pulau Semaku Landfill. (An island created just to dispose of waste) By utilising this glass waste, we will be able to extend the life of the landfill, therefore helping the environment as well.
WHAT IS ABRASIVE BLASTING?
Abrasive blasting is the general term applied to finishing processes that entail the high-pressure propulsion of a stream of abrasive material onto the surface of a workpiece. Abrasive blasting can serve many surface finishing purposes, such as removing contaminants or previous coatings, altering the shape and smoothing or roughening the surface.
LIMITED ABRASIVE AVAILABILITY
Abrasives for Blasting works are hard to come by in general, and companies are forced to import them into Singapore. Therefore, seen as our projects required a higher demand for abrasives, we decided to embark on a journey of manufacturing an abrasive that was not only cost-effective and environmentally-friendly but readily available for our projects and that of our clients around the region and beyond.
RECYCLED GLASS ABRASIVE
We now introduce, a recycled glass version of an abrasive – ABRABLAST™
ABRABLAST™ will be manufactured mainly with glass waste – collected by Abraclean by partnering up with waste collectors and other various companies that wish to dispose of the glass ethically in Singapore.

INTRODUCTION TO ABRABLAST™
COLLECTED GLASS WASTE IN ABRACLEAN YARD
EXAMPLE OF ABRABLAST™ USED IN A BLASTING SYSTEM
"There is no reason for any Glass Waste to be incinerated and destined for our precious landfill"
"ABRABLAST™ represents our first steps into creating a True Circle Economy"
"Windscreen and Laminated Glass can be repurposed into ABRABLAST™ to be reused as an abrasive media"
