Description: AeroAggregates is in Eddystone, PA, on the former site of the Baldwin Locomotive Company. The Baldwin Company produced over 70,000 steam locomotives throughout their history which are in use around the world. Today, the facility is a vertically integrated producer of ultra-lightweight aggregates produced from 100% curbside collected glass cullet. Foamed glass aggregates were originally produced in Scandinavia during the early 1990’s for use as a thermal barrier in road construction. Due to their very low bulk unit weight (8-15pcf), their applications have grown throughout the civil engineering market. Today foamed glass aggregates are used as lightweight fill on highways, bridge abutments, retaining walls, and green roofs. Other applications include backfill of foundations for drainage, insulation (prevention of frost heave) and reduction of lateral loads.
