“We selected ByFusion’s RePlast Blocks as Most Disruptive Innovation of the Year due to their ability to transform waste into useful, sustainable and realistic alternative to traditional construction materials,” said Kristin Musulin, editor of Waste Dive.
“We are honored to be recognized for this award from such a distinguished publication.

From hardscapes and infrastructure projects to general construction or community revitalization, RePlast fits. Our goal is to get our technology into the hands of as many people and companies as possible so we can clean up our planet and put our waste to work,“ said Heidi Kujawa, President and CEO of ByFusion.
The 2016 Dive Awards recognize the industry’s top disruptors and innovators. From Company of the Year to Obsession of the Year, Waste Dive solicited suggestions for title nominees from its 11,000 readers.
