Protecting the environment, saving energy
Recycling glass is an important contribution to saving natural resources and protecting the environment. The use of cullet can save up to 30 % of the energy used in the melting process compared with that needed to melt from raw materials. The final products are high quality glass containers that have impressive advantages over PET bottles and containers. Less refuse, less energy, environmental protection, time and time again.
The glass for recycling is delivered more or less colour sorted. However, extensive quantities of organic, inorganic and metallic contaminants are present and these must be removed in the processing plant. Before the cullet enters the automatic section of the recycling process the large contaminants must be removed manually.
