A new material is born – Janštejn glassworks is melting down and repurposing leftover production waste into a new material called BROKISGLASS

The Janštejn glassworks (Sklárna Janštejn), situated in the Czech Republic’s Vysočina region, has found an effective solution to the problem of utilising its production-generated waste.  The result is a new line of multicoloured glass “slabs” which offer a variety of uses in the fields of design and architecture. Such efforts serve as a notable example of how Czech companies are approaching waste as a source of new viable materials.
