sand desert dune technology


Our technology can help to mitigate the global sand shortages caused by a skyrocketing demand for building materials and limited environmental supplies. Due to shortages, sand prices are expected to increase by 50% within the next 20 years making developments pricier and supply unstable. Overexploitation of beaches and rivers for construction sand is resulting in the devastation of sensitive ecosystems globally.

Fibrilex enables the production of a drop-in replacement for construction sand, employing desert, dune, frac sands instead for concrete and roadwork applications. Our technology transforms these smooth aggregates into functional construction grade aggregates. Upgraded aggregates also show improvements in the compressive strength, slump, curing rate, workability and even end-use recyclability, in concrete.
