Over 48,000 corks recycled!

February 2nd, 2015

To date, you have helped us divert over 48,000 wine corks from the solid waste stream. That’s over 48 cubic feet of perfectly reusable cork. Thanks!

We are currently engineering for a jig to use for water jet cutting the recycled corks into uniform thickness ’tiles’ that would be supplied in square foot sheets to apply the same way ceramic floor tiles are installed.

It would be ‘loaded’ similar to the arrangement shown in the image above. The loaded jig would be locked into position for CNC cutting with a high-pressure water jet. Tiles would be quality sorted and then mounted on mesh backing in square foot sheets.

The engineering and prototyping is an expensive process, so we are considering crowd-funding to take this to the production stage. Details to follow!
