A ceramic tile disposal company in India is hoping that smart ceramic tile can be reused in compost, which is a waste-to-energy process that uses a heat-sensitive material to capture and store waste.
The technology is being tested at a composting facility and the company has already seen its results improve the quality of the ceramic tiles.
The tile-making process is called ceramic stone and it uses heat-resistant ceramic material, which can be made from waste materials or used for a wide range of products.
The company, called ceramic Stone Technologies Pvt.
Ltd., says that the tiles can also be used for energy efficiency.
The idea is to reuse the ceramic materials for various energy-saving products.
The company has tested the technology at the Indian Composting and Recycling Centre (ICRC) in the state of Karnataka. “
It has been developed in the past and we are planning to launch it soon.”

The ceramic stone that is used in the process will be placed in the composting unit and the ceramic stone will absorb the heat of the compost and generate electricity for the unit.
“After an hour, the heat is released and the tile starts emitting a small amount of heat,” said R. Raman, an executive member of the ICRC and an expert in ceramic stone technology.
The waste material can then be transferred to the compost bin and the process is repeated until the tile is completely digested.
“The ceramic stone is a very efficient material for making ceramic tiles,” said Sharma.
“With the use of this technology, we can create a large amount of ceramic tiles from a single material.”
He added that this type of process is currently in use in China, the United States and Europe.
According to the company, the ceramic material can be sourced from domestic and imported ceramic stones, which are often sourced from poor countries like Bangladesh.
“In fact, many companies use ceramic stones in the construction of their structures and they have been making ceramic tile for decades,” said Raman.
“Our tile-maker will be able to produce a wide variety of products and products from the same ceramic material.”
A company in New York, a world leader in ceramic tile manufacturing, has also tested the ceramic technology.
It has been developing a technology called “Ceramic Power” to power ceramic tiles and the project is on-going.
The firm said that it will soon introduce the product to the market and has already completed a pilot project with a consumer product.
The product will be offered in the US and the UK.
