Glass is 100% recyclable, it has an unlimited life and can be melted and recycled endlessly to make new glass products with no loss in quality.
MRF Glass clean up
Mixed MRF glass recovered in a MRF's primary processing line is transferred to the cleaning system.
Since there are many different generations of Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs), cleaning equipment in operation, and curbside collection programs, the quality generated by MRFs varies widely.
We eliminate contaminants as ceramics, stones, porcelain, metal, glass ceramic (heat resistant glass), leaded glass, organic impurities, plastics, cork and paper.
The gained glass will be sorted in flint glass, green glass, amber glass and other colors or combinations of colors.
For recycling waste glass and receiving a valuable raw material it requires many processing steps. One of them is optical sorting. By this both contaminants and color separation can be detected and separated.
