Inspired by Nature’s fascinating power to morph animate and inanimate existence, Dutch designer Inge Sluijs has discovered a process to transform landfill waste into an innovative, eco-friendly, durable and versatile material, named “Plasma Rock.”

The new material, composed entirely of recycled landfill junk, offers a sustainable solution to shave off landfill volumes while also getting rid of toxic waste, which could one day assume big enough proportions to pollute waster in coastal regions, notes Inhabitat.   

About 100kg of toxic landfill waste can be used up to produce 20kg of mechanically strong, dense and environmentally stable Plasma Rock, yet another example of how circular economy can drive us to a greener future, writes ZME Science
