Best Answer

Most foam glass is made by grinding glass from a glass melt into small particles and then mixing it with a carbon containing material and then reheating it up above the melting point of the glass in a box mold. The carbon material reacts with the glass to make carbon dioxide to make the foam. The glass used is mostly recycled glass, but the double heating and the grinding process makes the product expensive, but the product has as very long life compared to organic producs and more durability...
