Recycled glass ‘sand’

A Tulane team will work with the New Orleans-based glass recycling center Glass Half Full to develop a plan to divert glass from landfills and turn it into glass sand products to restore coastal communities and preserve historic sites. The project, led by Julie Albert, associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, was inspired by a service-learning collaboration.
