Gypsum recycling is the process of turning waste gypsum (from building) into recycled gypsum, producing a raw material that can swap virgin gypsum for virgin gypsum in the production of new products. Gypsum boards, which are wall or ceiling panels with a gypsum core between a paper lining, are the main source of gypsum trash.
These boards are also known as drywall, wallboards, sheetrock, plasterboards, and gyprock. Gypsum waste in some nations may also include plaster, gypsum blocks, and other materials.Rejects and non-spec materials produced during the production of gypsum products make up this trash, which is produced at industrial gypsum production sites.
The recycling of this waste stream typically forms a part of the gypsum facilities’ waste avoidance efforts. Gypsum manufacture or production waste is the name of the trash, while “production waste derived recycled gypsum” is the name of the recycled gypsum that is made from recycling this waste.
Gypsum waste from new construction projects is normally a clean waste made up mostly of plasterboard off-cuts drywall, wallboard, or gyprock that have been trimmed to meet the wall or ceiling’s measurements.
Some of the gypsum materials utilised on the site may be made up of trash. By buying made-to-measure boards, this waste, which is typically referred to as new construction gypsum waste, can be decreased.
The Global gypsum recycling market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
With its building products subsidiary CertainTeed LLC, Malvern, the maker of building materials Saint-Gobain, with its North American headquarters in Malvern, Pennsylvania, has installed recycling equipment at its gypsum wallboard plant.
The waste gypsum and waste paper are ground into tiny particles by this revolutionary recycling technology, which enables the company to collect and internally recycle the materials. After sorting, the materials are returned to the plant’s manufacturing process.
Each wallboard built at CertainTeed’s factory in Nashville, according to Saint-Gobain, has some recycled material made available through this procedure. In the upcoming years, the company intends to use more recycled resources in its gypsum wallboard.
