The greenSand breaker sand or sweeping sand, as it is also called is of course different. It is made from olivine-rich stones and therefore absorbs CO₂ . This is done through a process called natural weathering. Each grain of the mineral Olivine can absorb its own weight of CO₂ . All that is needed for this is water. So you can swipe in your street and clear CO₂  at the same time.

Our new crusher sand is a gradation smaller (previously 0-3 mm), making it easier to use in the narrow joints of tiles. It contains few fine particles. This prevents "blemish" spots on the tiles.

greenSand breaker sand is a coarse sand that has a large hook resistance due to the angular shape of the small stones (0-2 mm). This ensures stability and a water-permeable surface of pavements. The stones become fixed and cannot shift during showers or when weight is placed on the stones. In addition, it slows down the growth of weeds, algae and moss. Because it is permeable to water, it can also be used as a substrate for artificial grass.
