Bio-Glass is made of 100 percent recycled glass. It is available in tiles and slabs for hard surface design finishes such as countertops, wall partitions, floors and worktops. The glass is made of almost 100 percent crystalline silica in the form of quartz containing 70-72 percent weight percent silicon dioxide. Bio-Glass is 100 percent recyclable, too, and its colors depend on recycled components (hollow glass, tableware, and/or factory shards).
