Several tons of cullet are being recovered every day, and this cullet is returned to the furnace to give cost-saving and environmental benefits laminate recovery leads to less land fill and more efficient use of materials.The PFG site was developed by Pilkington in the 1950s, with the first drawn sheet glass line (SP1) commissioned in 1951.A second line, SP2, was introduced in 1965. In 1977, the float glass line (SP3) was commissioned and its first campaign ran for eight years. Since then the line has been enhanced on several occasions, to include the latest technology and introduce ever-improving quality and control systems.
PFG has developed a low-cost laminating glass recovery plant, that recovers over 90% of the glass used in windscreens.
