Welcome to Glasswrx

We are an advanced technology and materials science company. Our mission is to design and deploy advanced materials – mined from waste streams – that make cities resilient.

Rebuilding a Resilient America.

"The circular economy is the biggest economic opportunity in 250 years. Zero waste, low carbon companies will play a leading role in our economic and societal future. That's why we're here."

— Philip Galland, Co-Founder

THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

A circular economy ‘designs out’ waste and pollution. It is a $4.5 trillion opportunity. And it will reduce CO2 emissions by 48%, create jobs, improve public health — and heal the planet.

We’re starting with glass. You can too. Today, 70% of post-consumer glass is landfilled. Partner with us and upcycle it into Engineered Cellular Magmatics — advanced sustainable materials that make cities resilient.

“Engineered Cellular Magmatics (ECMs) are novel advanced materials recognized by the DoE as having high value and potential. With ECMs we can Rebuild a Resilient America."

— Rob Hust, Co-Founder

REBUILDING A RESILIENT
AMERICA

We cannot ‘rebuild a resilient America’ using the same 100+ year old materials that are crumbling in our roads, bridges, buildings and seawalls today.

ECMs (Engineered Cellular Magmatics) are revolutionarily sustainable, economic and effective. They have a 28x carbon offset over virgin raw materials. With ECMs we can:

  • Make longer lasting more eco-friendly concretes
  • Better clean air and treat water
  • Clean contaminated sites
  • Remediate decades of pollution from the earth

A NEW, RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE

As the impacts of climate change worsen, we must remodel our cities to absorb environmental and economic shocks and stresses — and flourish.

ECMs have myriad applications in Gray (concrete-based) and Blue-Green (air/water/earth) infrastructure.

  • ECMs make Gray infrastructure longer lasting, more resilient, and they open new design possibilities.
  • ECMs offer novel, economic, and effective ways to restore and regenerate local ecologies.

A RUM IN YOUR
CITY!

We’ve launched our pilot facility. We’re identifying and prioritizing our build out across America.

Each RUM creates jobs, prevents tens of thousands of tons of waste, and produces high value materials that make cities resilient. Join us!

GET STARTED WITH
GLASS

93% of people want to recycle, but cities struggle, and landfill 70% of post-consumer glass each year.

If you want to clean your city’s waste stream, improve glass recycling rates and help save the planet, we’re there for you.

We call our glass collection division, ‘The Upcycling Company’. What you recycle, we collect and upcycle.

FORWARD-THINKING PARTNERS

We partner with forward-thinking minds across government, industry, and not-for-profit.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy works to improve our economic prosperity, security, and environmental wellbeing. The Department of Energy is our preeminent agency for driving technological innovation, and the Savannah River National Laboratory is one of its crown jewels of science. We’re happy to count them all, and many more, as our partners.

ON A MISSION TO DO GOOD?

Our philosophy is to do well by doing good.

We’re happy to partner with select not-for-profits who help heal the planet, and fortify cities and communities against the impacts of climate change.

If resilient shelter, infrastructure or cleaner air, water or earth is mission-critical to you, maybe we can help.
