Plasma Rock

Inge Sluijs

Landfill waste is transformed into energy with the only by-product being the Plasma Rock.
The quality of this nearly undiscovered and non-toxic material is that it is mechanically strong, dense and environmentally stable. Besides the aesthetic differences (Plasma Rock can be green or black), the rocks have differences in the number of elements, depending on the type of waste.

The main elements in the rock are Silica, Lime, and Alumina. To get the best out of the Plasma Rock the material is broken down into shiny pieces which can then be crushed into a grey-black powder. 100 kg of landfill waste is equal to 20 kg of Plasma Rock. Sluijs created a variation of new materials by using these three states of matter and different temperatures.
