Ecolite 10/60 - Lightweight Gravel

10 to 60 mm

Ecolite Lightweight Gravel for building and construction

Ecolite LWG 10/60 is a lightweight gravel made from recycled waste glass for use in infrastructure and building projects including roads, tunnels and railways, building foundations, back fill of retaining walls and trenches and green roofs. 

Because of it's porous structure, Ecolite LWG has excellent thermal insulation properties and also is ideal for forming drainage layers. The 45° angle of repose makes Ecolite stable and easy to work with.

Polystyrene Litter Pervades Yarra River

Polystyrene, especially expanded polystyrene (EPS) has been identified as the most prevalent and pervasive litter item in the Yarra River, according to a 2020 report by YRKA. The report was funded by the Victorian Government with support from the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning, Parks Victoria and Melbourne Water. Since April 2018, approx 38,000 kg of polystyrene contaminated soil and general waste have been removed from the Yarra's riverbanks and reedbeds.

In addition to physical EPS material, styrenes, the building blocks of the polymer, are found in marine and freshwaters and sediments globally (Kwon et al., 2015, 2017). Because polystyrene plastic is thought to be one of the only sources of styrenes in the environment, the styrene contamination is likely a result of polystyrene weathering and leaching in marine and freshwater systems (Kwon et al., 2017). Furthermore, in some parts of the world EPS has been cited as a source of other chemicals to the environment (Rani et al., 2015; Jang et al., 2017).
