This machine crushes beer bottles into sand for construction



New Zealand beer company DB Breweries has installed bottle crushing machines that turn their @dbexport Beer bottles into usable sand for construction and even pharmaceuticals.



Simply drop in your used beer bottle and the machine turns it into 200 grams of powder. The process involves the removal of silica dust, which results in the sand substitute.



Beach sand has been heavily used in construction for decades and with the increase in demand, it's causing 70% to 90% of our beaches eroding away (according to the New York Times.) This project aims to replace the sand with beer bottle sand, which will not only preserve our beaches but also prevent the glass bottles from ending up in landfills.
