GLASS: Making Glass Work

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

Nampak Wiegand Glass, a partnership between Africa’s largest packaging company Nampak and German glass manufacturer Wiegand Glas, has recently completed a brand new glass recycling facility at its Roodekop site in Johannesburg.


The facility, a waste glass processing plant, accommodates state-of-the-art technology and equipment from Austrian supplier Binder
+ Co, and is expected to meet all Nampak Wiegand Glass’s processing and
supply needs in the future.

Using a high-resolution camera system, which is able to recognise a wide
colour spectrum, the innovative new plant will separate waste glass
shards according to colour - drastically speeding up the process when
compared to sorting different colour glass waste by hand. Furthermore,
the new plant will separate the waste glass from other material as well
as clean the sorted waste glass and deliver material that is ready for
use in the manufacture of new glass products.

The plant, in which Nampak Wiegand Glass has invested over R160-million,
has been a year in the making and will see the glass packaging company
meet its commitment to increase glass recycling rates in South Africa -
a major benefit for the environment as well as the network of agents and
informal collectors from which the post-industrial and post-consumer
glass is sourced.
