Shark Solutions is a Denmark based cleantech company that was established in 2005. The focus of the company is to transform what was previously thought to be a waste stream (damaged windshields), into advanced raw materials that help create new products.
Our recycled glass is used by leading fiberglass insulation manufacturers. The use of recycled glass in this process is important because if it is not, then natural raw materials are harvested from the earth (sand, soda ash, field spar, etc.), to create glass for this manufacturing. By using recycled glass from Shark Solutions instead, it has been estimated that Greenhouse Gas Emissions are reduced by 1 ton for every 5 tons of glass used.
The plastic interlayer known as PVB (PolyVinyl Butyral), is a non-toxic material that once recovered, cleaned and transformed into pellets or liquid, have many advantages for new products. One main use is replacing PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) and Latex in carpeting, which has been found to have environmental challenges.
Today, Shark Solutions have operations in Denmark, Belgium and on both the east and west coasts of the USA (Georgia and California), with more expansion planned.
