950 tpd batch plant for flint and amber glass production.


EME has commissioned the second EME Batch House including an automatic cullet return system for Mexican container glass manufacturer Industria Vidriera de Coahuila (IVC), at its plant in Piedras Negras.


After installation / commissioning of the first batch plant in 2012, EME delivered the second batch plant in 2019 and commissioned it successfully before the Covid-19 pandemic.
IVC’s new batch plant supplies batch for furnace 5 and a possible furnace 6, with a total capacity of 950 tpd in flint and amber glass production.


The EME design integrated economic concrete silos with a head house in steel. State-of-the-art equipment made by EME’s engineering and fabrication allows for a high efficiency of the batch plant.


Raw material charging, weighing, mixing and batch transport are controlled from a specialised EME control system.
