Benefit 6: Environmentally Friendly
FRP has actually been recycled for decades. Upon disposal it can be ground down and used as filler in concrete since the glass fibers improve the binding capability of the mix making it a recyclable product. Using FRP in lieu of steel and aluminum leads to lower energy consumption, lower area requirements and less generated waste during production with the smallest impact footprint. Additionally, the fact that FTC tanks’ design life exceeds 40 years, coupled with the fact that they are highly reusable, with most of their parts easily recyclable, add to the many environmental benefits that our FRP tanks exhibit.
