Nationally Significant" Boost For Glass Sorting

Processing capacity for recycled glass has received a "nationally significant" boost with what is believed to be the UK's first tri-colour sorting plant swinging into action.


Midlands firm Recresco has established the new glass processing facility at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, to allow the company to sort mixed glass from kerbside collections into clear, amber and green glass simultaneously.

The new plant is based on magnetic separation systems (MSS) technology along with a Powerscreen triple deck grader, a Redox air separator and an Atherton feed hopper and conveyors.

Company director Tim Gent said the new facility will support Recresco's vision of producing "99% pure-recycled coloured glass in commercial quantities".

He added: "Encouraging the UK market to use more recycled materials and developing new markets for them is a key aim for us."
