Lightweight filling material/insulation for foundation – Glasopor foam glass

Glasopor is the lightest granular building material on the market. It is made of 20 % glass, and 80 % air.

It’s unique qualities lead to reduced transport and construction time, which means reduced cost, and reduced impact on the environment.
